Like any genre there was stuff on the outer reaches, like some I posted.
but when people like Burt Bacharach, Hal David, Tony Hatch & Jackie Trent
and other songwriters,
took elements of it and successfully crossed easy listening over into the mainstream,
we got gems such as these.
Without easy listening, these songs would never have happened.
Meltingly gorgeous; and Sacha Distel doesn't look too bad himself introducing our Pet on French TV. Why can't I look that cool

"Im so happy that I'm 50 and lived to have thisï»¿ great music to be a fabric of my life" says one contributor on YouTube.
Well I'm 53 mate so hear hear.
And here the Easy Listening lesson endeth
I've tons and tons of this music but can't post it all.
I've barely scratched the surface.
What about all those stars from the '50s who found a new lease of life
by embracing the genre; stars such as Frank Sinatra, (Strangers in the Night) Sammy Davis Jr, Dean Martin (Gentle on My Mind) Tony Bennett,
The list goes on and on.
Anyone else is of course entitled to post their own
fab tunes and memories of this underrated genre.
Let the sun shine in.........................
