What if it rained? We didn’t care She said that someday soon The sun was gonna shine. And she was right, This love of mine, My Valentine
Written while on vacation in Morocco, Paul McCartney’s “My Valentine”, (featuring Eric Clapton on original record, backed by Diana Krall band) is a reserved, bluesy tune based on the sounds of classic crooners like Cole Porter and Frank Sinatra. It is one of two original tracks on McCartney’s tribute album Kisses on the Bottom.
Speaking of the crooners (early 20th century), technology had boosted the popularity of such smooth vocals by providing advanced microphones able to pick up a wider range of frequencies.
