Yesterday when I was young  performed by  Blossom Dearie  (1970)
Composed by Aznavoir, Charles
Arranged by Brian Gascoigne
Recommended by mattias [profile] on Friday 11th June 2004

This song is just one of the great songs from the Fontana album "Thats just the way I want to be". The song is written by Charles Aznavoir and this is the definitive version of it. Blossom is singing i front of a huge orchestra and her voice is clearer than ever as she sings this sad song to the happy bossa nova arrangements. Very nice!

She felt that Blossom's version deprived the song of its drama. I agree with you that the contrast of the sad song and the light, happy bossa arrangement works very well.
