With today’s deluge of music genres and musicians each offering their own brand of uniqueness, it’s hard to come across an artist or group that takes us back to the classics, when easy listening was an important part of one’s day. You could simply play your old records or purchase timeless ones still on the market, or you could just put on some Michael Bublé as you kick back and relax after a long day.
While one’s choice of music for the day highly depends on his or her mood, there’s just no denying that it’s the classic ones that are worth going back to, time and again. Being presented with so many genres and artists can get a tad overwhelming, and that’s not something music of the past does. In fact, it does just the opposite: soothes, relaxes, and counters moods that border on negative.
In order to experience the same feel-good vibe today, you could simply put on your old records and stroll wistfully down a lane you’ve imagined you walked, purchase timeless albums that are still on the market, or you could just put on some Michael Bublé as you kick back and relax after a long day.
The charismatic singer, songwriter, and producer not only graces the music industry and fans the world over with his sound; apparently, he has a few other talents not many know of, one being the impressive and entertaining ability to mirror iconic artists such as Frank Sinatra.
He can even make his voice sound like the legendary Johnny Cash,
There are even some liken Michael Buble’s style to that of the iconic Dean Martin,
And believe it or not, Buble can even mimic the sound of the “king” himself, Elvis Presley.
Upon listening to Michael impersonate these famous singers the reporter says,
“You have a reputation of being a very good mimic,”
Michael Bublé, modern day crooner, smiles knowingly. Aside from his soothing singing voice and overall charm, it’s refreshing to know that the award-winning artist also has other delightful talents up his sleeve.
“You steal from everybody, and it’s research.”
The artist was quoting Tony Bennett, (even the manner in which he quoted Bennett was as entertaining. Before demonstrating how he could impressively mimic the artists he looks up to, Bublé gives a brief explanation of why the advice given to him by Bennett makes a lot of sense.
“By learning and finding these people that I loved, I started to be able to take things and aspects of them that I loved,” the artist shared.
According to him, it was the way Frank Sinatra enunciated the vowels with each word he sang – a detail not many took notice of until Bublé mentioned it. It was also in how Dean Martin sounded so effortlessly cool with the way he sang, walked, and talked, or the similar way Elvis Presley exuded coolness with his deep voice and overall demeanor. Each explanation came coupled with a sample line from the aforementioned artists’ hits, each sounding remarkably like the original thanks to Bublé’s mimicking skills.
Michael Bublé may have been just expounding on why he looks up to these artists through brief explanations and delightful demonstrations but little does he know viewers are already being treated to entertainment like no other.
It’s just the kind of clip to bring a smile to your face and gently nudge you to put on those old records again.
