JUDY GARLAND THAT OLD BLACK MAGIC



Jaycub Howard's April offering for the Judy Garland Album Of The Month series is an exquisitely crafted and romantic nod to the legendary film pairings of Judy Garland and Gene Kelly. The soundtrack is from Judy Garland Second Souvenir Album, released by Decca Records in May, 1943. The album had several singles from it make it up the Hit Parade, the most successful being That Old Black Magic backed with Poor Little Rich Girl. Lyricist Johnny Mercer later confessed that he not only wrote That Old Black Magic for Judy Garland, but about her. Turns out his lifelong unrequited love for her was a muse for some of his greatest works.
Enjoy the video, it's one of Jaycub's best.
