Lil’ Darlin’

Kurt Elling

“When I get to having a feeling for something there ain’t too much of, my little darling gives me her love. Won’t catch me chasing around at night. I’m not impressed with the glamorous types. Lil’ darling may not be as pretty as some other girls you may see, but my little darling only loves me.
… She was never chased around by a lot of guys. She never won no beauty prize. As long as she loves me, I don’t care!”
Kurt warms it up slowly and beautifully, taking his precious time (2:38 seconds) before injecting it with his signature power and feeling, investing himself in the song, and finally owning it. What a singer!
