Music Monday: Play That Song vs. Heart and Soul


Happy Monday everyone and welcome back to Music Monday! Let's share some songs we've been enjoying lately!  If you would like to play and I really hope you do, please see the rules and link up below.

Rules:

Every Monday share a few songs you've been enjoying lately.  It doesn't have to be a specific genre, new, or one of your favorites - just something you'd like to share with others.  If possible, share a music or lyric video of the song and your thoughts on the song(s), artist(s), and/or music video(s).

If you would like to participate in Music Monday, please join the link up by sharing your post's url.

This week I'm sharing "Play That Song" by Train (2016) and "Heart and Soul" by Larry Clinton and His Orchestra, featuring Bea Wain (1938).  I've been hearing a lot of Train's newest song and honestly my favorite part is that it draws so heavily on "Heart and Soul".  That's what really makes it stand out to me, but I must say I love how happy the official video is!  If you haven't heard the original "Heart and Soul" (written by Frank Loesser and composed by Hoagy Carmichael - the singer who James Bond in Casino Royal by Ian Fleming is supposed resemble), I highly recommend it - Bea Wain has a beautiful voice and the band sounds amazing.  The video for it below is from a 1939 short that featured several live performances of major songs from the time.  By the way, Bea Wain will turn 100 years old on April 30th.
