Weekend Playlist: Someone to Watch Over Me
When it comes to jazz standards, few are as famous as George and Ira Gershwin's Someone to Watch Over Me. Like many of the Gershwins' tunes, it was written for a show but took on a life of its own. It's been recorded a number of times and it would be difficult to select one definitive version of the song. So, I'll settle for a very good one: Blossom Dearie's 1961 version of the song.
