Jack Jones - Real Live Girl

Nothing can beat getting swept off your feet by a real. live. girl…sings Jack Jones on this gem from his 1963 album, She Loves Me. The song was originally sung by Sid Caesar from the hit Broadway musical Little Me running that same year which went on to be nominated for 10 Tony Awards.

Discovered singing in clubs in San Francisco by Peter King in 1961, Jack Jones was quickly signed to the Kapp label. Paired with arranger Jack Elliott for this one, Elliott captures the breezy, playful spirit of the song by Cy Coleman & Carolyn Leah but throws in some bossa nova for good measure.

I’ll take the flowering hat
And the towering heel, and a squeal
of a real, live, girl.

hey, he’s just sayin’.
