Cold Cold Heart
Joni James Lyrics


Oh yes man, I tried so hard my dear to show that you're my every dream
Yet you're afraid each thing I do is just some evil scheme
A memory from your lonesome past keeps us so far apart
Why can't I free your doubtful mind and melt your cold cold heart

Another love before my time made your heart sad and blue
And so my heart is paying now for things I didn't do, yes
In anger unkind words are said that make the teardrops start
Why can't I free your doubtful mind and melt your cold cold heart

We should mention this was the only Joni James album where all three of her career music arrangers did orchestrations. They were Lew Douglas, David Terry and Chuck Sagle, who had been a protege of Lew Douglas. One reason Joni James records sound like none other is the singular work of these musical genuises.

Pierre from Australia Ah many a night i would be sent to sleep by these wonderful singers with my earphones on my ears & listen to these dulcet tones & beautiful songs & all this on a crystal set radio ! in the late 40s& early 50s & even today all of these songs & artists still stir my long forgotten youth from all those years ago . Thanks to youtube for posting all of those wonderful songs from way back when & even into R & R through the 50s & i was born in 1935 & lived through these pre war songs & after when the crooners & big bands were still around in the 50s until they faded away & Bill Haley took over ! Bye Pierre

What a beautiful voice. I loved this era of music. I will be looking for a CD of her music. Thank you for posting singers like Joni. I do have an album of Joni's and I treasure it.

I bought this album when it first came out and continue to play it regularly. It's absolutely brilliant. Hank would have loved it.

One of the first things Joni recorded for the album and it was done at a mono singles session with a different microphone than the rest of the album. But there is no way to tell! M-G-M's fabulous sound engineers were able to compensate for the microphone discrepancy and to make the mono sound like pure stereo and this in pre-computer age. At this point Joni was recording so much she would have several projects underway concurrently and she was always totally and capably in charge.
