For Once In My Life – Tony Bennett

One of the reasons why I became such a big fan of Stevie Wonder was this song.  It wasn’t til later that I discovered that Wonder himself didn’t write it.  Not only that, but someone else would have this song as a staple part of his repertoire.  That someone being none other than the Last Crooner – Mr. Tony Bennett.

I had heard of him before, but I was more into what Sinatra had to sing for himself, and so it was only during the university days that my best friend highlighted the quality offering Mr. Bennett had to make to the songscape and lo and behold it was so.  When I heard this version of the song I got goosebumps.  It is so powerfully rendered that you’d almost forget that some other dude didn’t do to bad at the track either.  Enjoy.
