    All of my 'clocks' do it themselves so I don't worry about it.

    Summertime, and the livin' is easy
    Fish are jumpin' and the cotton is high
    Oh, your daddy's rich and your ma is good-lookin'
    So hush, little baby, don't you cry...


    This track has been covered by many, many artists over the years since George Gershwin composed the music for the lyrics that were written by Dubose Heyward, who authored the novel 'Porgy' The opera Porgy And Bess is founded upon this very novel.
    It's a fine piece of music, both powerful and haunting and I'm torn as to who actually does the better version.
    Personally, I'm torn between Paul Robeson, Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong, (I have their 1958 studio album on CD:Happy) and Billie Holiday.

    What's your most favoured version of this seemingly timeless song?:Watching

    Thank you for taking the time to answer HP.:) It's one piece of music I can never tire of listening to.:Happy

    I think Louis and Ella complimented each other just perfectly. :Singing

    You can almost feel the heat coming off that song.
