Standards

 

As a songwriter, I look with great respect upon my favorite standards, and there are many.  These songs are a joy to sing.  I sing them because I love them, and because they teach me how to be a better songwriter.  I hope you enjoying listening to them as much as I enjoyed recording them.  Just click on the song title to listen.  ~ Bobbie

Ne Me Quitte Pas

This French song has been recorded by Jacques Brel, Nina Simone, and most recently by Belinda Carlisle, among many artists and in many languages.  I don’t think there has been a song that says «desperation» quite as well as this one.  It also expresses a lot of love and desire...and is oh so very French.
