Michael Buble, known for his big band anthems and romantic melodies has pleased fans with his latest album ‘To be loved.’
But be surprised when you hit play, as Mr Buble has taken his listeners for a spin on this recent record. Starting off with ‘You make me feel young’, Buble throws in his usual big band staples and classic upbeat vibes. Moving on to his latest single ‘It’s a beautiful day’, which gets everybody smiling. But skip a few to ‘Come dance with me’, and you’ll feel like you’re in Latin America swooping across a dance floor at a fancy event.
To be in keeping with his characteristic ballads, ‘Close your eyes’, is definitely one for fans of Buble’s traditional tunes ‘Home’ and ‘Lost’.
And travel back in time to tracks 4, 5 and 11 where the smooth singer covers ‘Who’s lovin’ who’ – most famously performed by the Jackson 5, ‘Something Stupid’ – featuring Reese Witherspoon (who isn’t fantastic, sadly), and the Toy Story classic – ‘You’ve got a friend’ (very sweet).
Moving away from his famous Christmas album, Michael has obviously spent valuable time making sure he adds a mix of old and new on the CD, which is currently number 7 on the iTunes album chart.
Overall, To Be Loved is exactly what you would expect from Canadian born Michael; a touch of class, a dash of fun, and a lot of love.
