What Are You Doing New Years’ Eve is one of my favorite songs of all time. Problem is, artists often don’t sing to the words or the meaning of the song. It’s about knowing the one you choose may not choose you, but “I’m askin’ just the same.” Four videos below: Nancy Wilson, Diana Krall, Karen Carpenter and Matthew Luke Sandoval. Do you have a favorite?
The first video is Matthew Luke Sandoval. I’m not familiar with his work but his voice is gorgeous. He “gets” it.

The second video is Nancy Wilson – one of my favorite voices of all time, singing one of my songs of all time. (Why the frequent pics of Denzel Washington?)

Speaking of spectacular voices, here’s the incredible Karen Carpenter. (don’t watch the video, the music is out of sync with Karen)

Here’s Diana Krall. Love her voice. This isn’t my favorite version of the song. I like to hear a little bit of playfulness, rather than a poor girl thinking her life will ruined if she doesn’t get the date. Still yet, love the voice.
