Remember that scene from American Hustle when Christian Bale and Amy Adams danced and lip sync’d to “I’ve Got Your Number”? We loved all of it, the scene, the choice of song, that sweet comb-over, and the rest of a stellar soundtrack!
Released on December 13th, 2013, David O. Russell’s American black comedy crime film won three Golden Globes for Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy, Amy Adams for Best Actress, and one for Jennifer Lawrence for Best Supporting Actress. The soundtrack features classic songs by ELO, Wings, Chris Stills, Tom Jones and more (read a great interview with Music Supervisor Susan Jacobs HERE). Jack Jones appears as himself/night club singer in the film and recorded the Cy Coleman & Carolyn Leigh standard in one afternoon and shot the scene the next day. Jones, who became a major jazz and pop singer in the 1960s, recorded numerous Coleman compositions over the years starting with one of our faves, “Real Live Girl” from his 1963 album, She Loves Me for Kapp Records.
This week’s top tune was originally written for the hit 1962 Broadway Musical, Little Me has been recorded over the years by the likes of Tony Bennett, Ella Fitzgerald, Peggy Lee, Nancy Wilson, and Jill Sobule.
