Album Review

Pro-Social Content

Innocent love songs from the 1940s and ’50s bring to mind Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett and Nat King Cole. Giddy joy and the sweet blush of romantic love grace “All These Things,” “Good Night My Love (Pleasant Dreams),” “I Only Have Eyes for You,” “The Very Thought of You,” “For Once in My Life,” a sleepy rendition of “Only You” and the Platters classic “My Prayer.” On “More,” Connick promises to give “the greatest love the world has known” to his lifelong mate. “Other Hours” shows concern for a superficial society girl who is lonely despite being the life of the party. “My Blue Heaven” looks forward to the comforts of home (“I’m gonna see a smiling face, a fireplace, a cozy room/A little nest that nestles where the roses bloom/Just Jilly and me, and baby makes three”). Sweet stuff from a bygone era.

Summary Advisory

Teens willing to explore the mellow tones of artists like Harry Connick and Norah Jones may be in the minority, but they’re out there. Only You offers families a smooth, nostalgic collection they can enjoy together.
