Some day, when I'm awfully low,
When the world is cold,
I will feel a glow just thinking of you...
And the way you look tonight.
Oh but you're lovely, with your smile so warm
And your cheek so soft,
There is nothing for me but to love you,
And the way you look tonight.
With each word your tenderness grows,
Tearing my fear apart...
And that laugh that wrinkles your nose,
Touches my foolish heart.
Lovely ... Never, ever change.
Keep that breathless charm.
Won't you please arrange it ?
'Cause I love you
Just the way you look tonight.

Ouch. It was great until Brian starting singing.

I like the style of this version; another vocalist would have made it great. Hmm, who should it have been?

The vocals and instrumentals don't seem to go together. Even the tempo doesn't seem to match.

Wow...  this is cool...

this song reminds me of what an old friend of mine said recently about the new Bob Dylan album... he said, "Love it. Sounds like Louis Armstrong!"

The Way You Look Tonight has that same sort of feel to it of music from the Jazz Age...

by the way, for more information about the new Bob Dylan album called Tempest, look here...

There's just the smallest touch of Tiny Tim in there.

Oof.  Is he trying to sound like he's been recorded and played back on a circa 1910 cylinder?
I really like Bryan, but his Taxi CD (with Robin Trower) is more up my alley.

FYI, Roxy's Live At the Apollo is one of best concert DVDs I've ever seen.

Check out Michael Fremer's review of the misunderstood McCartney album of standards:

No.

No. No. No. Some songs are just too iconic to cover.  
Utterly horrible.  Almost as bad as McCartney's album of standards.  And I love both those guys.
I like it. {#Bananapiano}
Sounds like he ran a couple of laps before singing.
Been waiting for years to hear something from this great album on RP. Thanks, Bill.
