Michael Buble "To Be Loved" Album Review

Disclosure: I participated in this campaign for One2One Network. I received a free copy of the album to facilitate my review. By posting, I am  eligible for incentives. All opinions stated are my own.

What can I say, but everyone's favorite Canadian crooner is back again, finding his harmony while making his way through the American songbook (and looking oh-so dapper in a suit)!

 "To Be Loved" out now, finds the Grammy winner covering songs by Frank Sinatra, the Bee Gees, Jackson 5, Elvis Presley, Van Morrison, and more. In the mix of golden standards are four original songs co-written by Buble, dipping into his personal life for inspiration.  I'm not sure whose song was "Come Dance With Me", I love the beat and lyrics to it, and if I hadn't had back surgery this week, I would have been dancing to it! "It's a Beautiful Day" is also a favorite of mine, maybe because it's the first song that I heard on the radio! I was surprised to hear Reese Witherspoon sing with Michael on "Something Stupid", she had a quiet voice, in my opinion.  Here's the links to Michael Buble's video "It's a Beautiful Day",  "You Make Me Feel So Young",  April 25- Performing in the NYC Subway !!
Those are 3 awesome videos! These are good times for the singer who is about to become a first-time dad. He sounds like a man in love with life. "I wrote Close Your Eyes about my wife and about the power of all the women in my life-- my sisters, my mom, my grandma and all women in general. Let's face it, where would we be without them? I Got It Easy, another original, is basically a song where I count my blessings and is a reminder to me and everyone to appreciate all the good parts of life. I'm a very lucky guy and I never want to forget it."
