Sony. 1999.

Format: Audio CD
This compilation of classic easy-listening music from the fifties and sixties sold so well that two sequels were released (More music to watch girls by, Music to watch girls by volume 3). This type of music has a significant fan base in Britain as the more recent series of compilations (Memories are made of this) confirms.
This collection features three songs by Vic Damone (On the street where you live, Almost like being in love, It had to be you) and two each by Andy Williams (Music to watch girls by, Can't take my eyes off you), Petula Clark (Don't sleep in the subway, Downtown), Doris Day (Perhaps perhaps perhaps, Move over darling) and Nancy Sinatra (These boots are made for walking, Sugar town).
There are other famous classics here including Spanish eyes (Al Martino), Beyond the sea (Bobby Darin), Moon River (Danny Williams - no relation to Andy as far as I know, but Danny's version was a UK number one hit), Magic moments (Perry Como), That's amore (Dean Martin), Love letters in the sand (Pat Boone) and Let there be love (Nat King Cole) - and that's just a few of them.
This is a magnificent compilation of easy listening music from the fifties and sixties. With 38 tracks, there is plenty to enjoy.

You won't realise how many of these songs you will be able to sing along too until you listen to this album. I've been watching far too much TV, there are loads of songs which if your young like me will know parts of because of adverts - this is a great album - which will have you humming, singing and dancing along.

Recently I purchased this C.D. and have not stopped playing it while travelling to and from work as i am tired of listening to the same old constant music on the radio.I was'nt even born when most of these artists were recording and find that this C.D. makes you sing along and be happy.Andy Williams title track is particularly catchy when volume pumped up and all the beautiful girls passing by.A definite must-buy for all avid music fans young and old who enjoy these tracks

The only thing I will say about this CD is that the 2007 version only has 16 tracks on each CD, rather than the 19 tracks on the original 2000 edition. Otherwise still agreat CD!!

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Most of these songs are extremely famous, ie number one records or latterly used in advertising campaigns which can boost the profile of a neglected song into the stratosphere. The key point is that the sound quality of the tracks is the best available, MUCH better than in many other reissues and secondly the three 2 CD sets are available second hand for buttons so the whole series is highly recommended to anyone who likes 50's and 60's hits - isn't that everyone who isn't unresponsive to melody?
The track ordering is virtually random. Virtually no sleeve notes. So I would rate it 4.5 stars but half stars are not available here.
The Brits slightly let the side down with their less sophisticated and less well engineered contributions. Tony Hatch was something of an English Bacharach but the melodically gorgeous Don't Sleep in The Subway sort of demonstrates the problem of English sixties pop - a great song yes - but a great record - not really. In LA a group like Spanky and Our Gang, the Fifth Dimension or the Mamas and Papas or even the Monkees, would have made pop nirvana out of a composition like that. There is a lot less chance of a post 1965 hit attracting the numerous cover versions that a fifties or forties song would and therefore less chance of somebody really nailing it with a definitive version. Often we're stuck with only the hit version, recorded in a rush without too much care or attention.
My particular favourites are Buddy Grecos the Lady Is a Tramp and Mel Torme's Blue Moon - 2 tracks I would otherwise have been very unlikely to own and in a style that has receded into the mists of time so much as to now seem deeply fresh and exotic.

Last summer I accidentally discovered this CD while on holiday with my parents. We hardly listened to any other music all week. It's got such pick-me-up beats and very catchy words! I brought it back to France and it caught on quickly with friends - singing along (beaming with joy!) while driving past curious cows in the country or even just sitting around with a nice glass of rosé in a city apartment. Wherever you listen to it, it really does work!! Hey Mambo!

I grew up with music like this. Fabulous, happy music which takes you out of yourself. I also bought the second CD "More Music to Watch Girls By" and hope they'll bring out a third album. How about including 'The Girl from Ipanema" by Astid Gilberto and "High Hopes" by Frank Sinatra. I can't get enough of this wonderful album!

Sitting in the window of some coffee shop in Hampstead watching the world rush past with 'Music To Watch Girls By' on the personal stereo... a perfect Sunday afternoon.
