Following the success of Sinatra’s successful compilation, This Is Sinatra!, Capitol Records followed suit in August of 1957 with a collection of previously released singles from the great Nat “King” Cole.
The lp This is Nat “King” Cole reached #18 on the Billboard album chart and featured the timeless Cy Coleman/Joseph McCarthy ballad, “I’m Gonna Laugh You Out of My Life”. Additional renowned recordings of the song followed by the likes of Sarah Vaughan, Peggy Lee, Johnny Mathis and Nancy Wilson but Nat’s was the first. The arrangement is a classic by Nelson Riddle. Nat would have been 99 years old come Saturday, happy birthday to one of the best!
I’m gonna laugh you right out of my life
Make it a beautiful joke
No one will know you broke my heart
But if I find you and I…really meant that last goodbye
Then, I’m gonna laugh so hard I’ll cry.
