Uh, that's great, but isn't it 'Can't get used to losing you'?

“Moon River” very close to my favorite song of all time....I still like George Strait’s “Amarillo by Morning” and “Wildfire” by Micheal Martin Murphy.....

I was a rocker in the 60’s and would NEVER admit to liking the pop music my folks liked. But Andy Williams always put a smile on my face. What a great voice and a truly gentle, kind man.

Gotta agree...I switched over to XM Fifties on Five after I heard he’d passed and sure enough, they played this within a half-hour. Wonderful music that still touches the heart.

Goodbye, Andy.

"Can't Get Used to Losing You" was a hit in the spring of 1963, a time when some of the finest popular music of the 1960's could be heard on the radio. Other great tunes of the period include:

Catch the soaring part about 2:30- this is what made Andy great and set him apart from other singers.
Absoltely breathtaking

It is very good, but I think it’s thanks to the arrangement. Somebody else could’ve made this record, I think.

How about “MUSIC TO WATCH GIRLS BY”

The instrumental version by Bob Crewe was a hit in 1967 and got a lot of airplay on KWIZ at 1480 kcs out of Santa Ana, Calif., my favorite radio station at the time, but I never heard the Andy Williams version until you posted it today.

My all-time favorite Andy Williams song is actually a Christmas song, “Oh, Holy Night.” The music is simple, his voice is AMAZING, especially when he hits the high note.

His most famous Christmas song is probably “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year”, which is great too, but he really scores with “Oh, Holy Night.”

That is, indeed, a fine rendition. You can listen to it here

However, I prefer to hear the song in the original French, a celebration of Christ's arrival to save humanity, that is superior to the stodgy English translation. Here are a couple of good recordings of the original version, known as "Minuit, Chrétiens" (Christians, it's midnight) by Richard Verreau and Roberto Alagna.
