Looking for the Shatner Version

Posted by Mike on November 16, 2003 12:23 PM

Driving back from class last week, I caught a weirdly mellow show on the local NPR affiliate (I think there's usually a book reading show of some sort on then). The host played Karrin Allyson's rendition of "Insensatez," which has a complementary bit of Chopin for bookends. It got in my head. iTunes Music Store to the rescue. $0.99 later, I was able to get some relief, but it took another $0.99 for the Tony Bennett version, which is a little more emotive (natch).

There are also Lalo Schifrin (of "Enter the Dragon" soundtrack fame), Ella Fitzgerald, Wes Montgomery, and Earl Klugh versions, but no sign of the Shatner cover anywhere. Rats. I know he did it best without even hearing it.

Several Hours Later: Score! Thanks, Shareaza! And yes, Shatner rawks!
