Throwback Track Thursday: “Miss Otis Regrets” – Ella Fitzgerald
Though the background to this Cole Porter composition is a sad one, the beautiful emotions of the song are brought forth with such grace and style by the way Ella Fitzgerald chooses to sing the words. Her version of the song is more than just singing, to me. Her interpretation helps many to visualize the title character’s tragedy in a haunting recounting of her last moments. The beauty in the sadness of a song is this piece, by this singer.
