Music Mondays: It Had to Be You by Tony Bennett feat. Carrie Underwood

Music Mondays is a book meme where you share a song you really like. It is hosted by The Tattooed Book Geek.


For this week, I am choosing a jazz song. I love listening to jazz at night because it relaxes me. It makes me feel nostalgic. It makes me think of candlelit dinners, slow dancing, and a time in the past when people still listen to vinyl. I guess I am an old soul.

The song I choose is It Had to Be You by Tony Bennett. Personally, I like this duet version with Carrie Underwood. 😊

For nobody else give me a thrill
With all your faults I love you still
It had to be you, wonderful you
It had to be you

LYRICS:

It seems like dreams like I’ve always had
Could be, should be, making me glad
Why am I blue?
It’s up to you to explain
I’m thinking maybe, baby, I’ll go away
Someday, someway, maybe you’ll come and say
It’s you that I need
And you’ll be pleading in vain
It had to be you, it had to be you
I wandered around, finally found that somebody who
Could make me be true, could make me be blue
And even be glad just to be sad thinking of you
Some others I’ve seen
Might never be mean
Might never be cross or try to be boss
But they wouldn’t do
For nobody else give me a thrill
With all your faults I love you still
It had to be you, wonderful you
It had to be you
Some others I’ve seen, some others I’ve seen
Might never be mean, might never be mean
Might never be cross or try to be boss
They wouldn’t do
For nobody else gave me a thrill
With all your faults I love you still
It had to be you, wonderful you
It had to be you
