Please recommend Woody Allen-ish songs

Do you know what I mean?

The kind that Woody Allen always has in his films. I mean the Broadway-ey, Robbie-Williams-Swing-When-Youre-Winning-ish, cute-rhymes-ey sort of songs. I have no idea where to start. Blue Eyes?

if you're looking for a great frank cd, i'd recommend the best of the reprise years. it's called frank reprise: the very good years. i love this album. it makes me want to dance.



i will try to think of more fun, swingy type albums.

Swing? Is that what the genre's called?

Great pick, Screamball, but what about one with a variety of singers, not just Blue Eyes? Who sang that Witchcraft song? And that "do do that voodoo that thing that you do" song?

here's an amazon list of classic big band albums. there are some good compilations in here:

amazon list

this one looks fun.

frank sings witchcraft although i'm not sure who did the original.

i just don't know about that "do do that voodoo that thing that you do" song.

1) Count Basie's "Take the A Train", which was featured in "Mighty Aphrodite".

2) Gershwin's "Rhapsody in Blue" from "Manhattan".

3) "Love theme from Bananas aka Love Your Lovin'" from "Bananas"

Thanks for the recommendations. Count Basie seems to be a favourite; I'll check that out first.
