Peggy Lee/PJ Harvey/Bette Midler

For some unknown reason I've performed this one two weeks in a row at Karaoke night. Except, I just heard the original by Peggy Lee, so I guess it was the PJ Harvey version I was actually trying to drunkenly emulate. The Peggy version is more detatched and less melodramatic than I had expected. Polly, on the other hand, belts it as if here life depended on it and she were indeed ready for "that final disappointment". Despite some odd looks, it's a fun one to perform, totally bizarre and random. The formerly Divine Miss Bette Midler even pulls it off OK on her otherwise drab Peggy Lee Songbook album. Why not, here's all three: Peggy Lee - Is That All There Is? MP3 3.96MB, 128kbps, 44kHz PJ Harvey & John Parish - Is That All There Is? MP3 4.67MB, 128kbps, 44kHz Bette Midler - Is That All There Is? MP3 6.10MB, 192kbps, 44kHz
