She sang what many have hailed as the definitive "My Funny Valentine".  One of the most glorious singers...  may she rest in peace.

Not a big fan, but I don't think anyone will ever sing "If He Walked Into My Life" as well as she did.  A truly great recording.

Written by the man who gave Steve and Eydie their big break, Steve Allen:

 

You're walking along the street or you're at a party
Or else you're alone and then you suddenly dig
You're looking in someone's eyes, you suddenly realize
That this could be the start of something big

You're lunching at twenty-one and watching your diet
Declining a Charlotte Russe, accepting a fig
When out of a clear blue sky, it's suddenly gal and guy
And this could be the start of something big

There's no controlling the unrolling of your fate, my friend
Who knows what's written in the magic book
But when a lover you discover at the gate, my friend
Invite her in without a second look

You're up in an aeroplane or dining at Sardi's
Or lying at Malibu alone on the sand
You suddenly hear a bell and right away, you can tell
That this could be the start of something grand

This could be the start of something very big
Why don't you play your part? Please give your heart to me and see
This could be the start of something wonderful
Why don't you take a chance? Just try romance with me and see

You're watching the sun come up and counting your money, girl
Or else in a dim cafe, you're ordering wine
Then suddenly, there he is and you wanna be where he is
And this must be the start of something
This could be the heart of something
This could be the start of something big

 

RIP.

Too bad she's gone. Blame it on the Bossa Nova.
