Latest music video from our new album Swings and heartaches. Available on CDBaby; http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/lillyofthewe...http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/swin... "Swings & heartaches" includes eleven songs, in two parts. The "swings" are lively, up-tempo songs from the 40s/50s, featuring two Patsy Cline hits ("Gotta lotta rhythm in my soul" & "Walkin' after midnight"), one by Hank Williams ("Lovesick blues"), two old western/swing standards ("My window faces the south", "I'm gonna sit right down and write myself a letter") and a modern swing ("Who knows what tomorrow may bring"). The "heartaches" are beautiful ballades with strong lyrics. One is a Johnny Cash/June Carter duet ("If I were a carpenter"), another is an Everly Brothers' classic ("Crying in the rain"); a modern nostalgic song by Juice Holland & Sam Brown ("Valentine moon") and two Bulgarian folk melodies ("Brala moma" & "Malka moma").
