A selection of hits and covers,
This review is from: Music To Watch Girls By - The Very Best Of (Audio CD)
New compilations of Andy's music are released at regular intervals, with many of the songs reappearing. So it is that this compilation contains a selection of Andy's classic hits (though there are some notable omissions, especially Almost there and Home loving man) and many of his covers of other people's hits.
This particular compilation features his duet version of Can't take my eyes off you with Denise Van Outen, but most if not all of the other tracks have been released on earlier compilations of Andy's music. It begins with Music to watch girls by, which became Andy's first UK top ten hit for 26 years following its use in a commercial, and ends with that duet with Denise Van Outen. In between, you will find the other classic songs associated with Andy (not all of them hits for him) including Happy heart, Born free, Can't get used to losing you, Can't help falling in love, Solitaire, Moon river, May each day, Days of wine and roses and his solo version of Can't take my eyes off you.
Andy's distinctive interpretations of songs made famous by others are well represented too. These include Up up and away, The impossible dream, On the street where you live, Unchained melody, Spooky, Something stupid, Raindrops keep falling on my head, The look of love, We've only just begun and Stranger on the shore.
This is not the definitive Andy Williams hits collection but nevertheless provides a fine introduction to his music.
