Words by Steve Multer
A classic crooner Big Band track about the numerous ways love can jump up and smack you in the head when you least expect it.
Commissioned to underscore the opening credits of Osso Bucco (2008 Riverwest Films) starring Mike Starr and Illeana Douglas, this reverent nod to Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra has been heard in Entourage (HBO,) CSI: Crime Scene Investigation (CBS,) and the made-for-TV feature Legally Blondes (MGM/ABC Family.) The song won the Billboard World Song Contest and was an honoree in the Great American Song Contest.
