  1. I’m so used to the original (Sarah Vaughan) and the tango (Gotan Project) versions of this song that it’s very hard to wrap my ear around this one. I do love Natacha but this song…I don’t know, it doesn’t really sound good to me with all that “arabesque”. I know she does this more lately – takes popular (English) songs and adds that Middle Eastern flavour to them. It works sometimes (see “I put a spell on you”) but some other times it’s just kitsch. I’m still hooked on her early albums though…

  2. Hi, Anda. I pretty much agree with you. I’m not thrilled with her version of this song (it’s not nearly as good as “I Put A Spell On You),” but it was nice to find out that she had done the soundtrack to this new movie that’s out…

    As for her early albums versus later… Yeah, I think I liked Diaspora and Gedida the most. But she hasn’t come out with an album yet (that I know of) which didn’t contain at least a couple of songs that I thoroughly enjoyed.
