The old crooners are not so bad. Tony Bennett is pretty good, and even some of Barry Manilow's ballads are good. (Didn't expect me to say that, did you? Oh!) I think my favorite is Andrea Bocelli, though (although he's only a part-time crooner).
Some of the not-so-old...
I used to love to watch Dean Martin. The dancers, Gold Diggers, were what I thought were as close to perfect as it gets being a girl. (yeah, kinda conflicted with my suffragist, women's lib roots).
One of my favorites was the song "Baby, It's cold outside"
Yes, I still love Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis, Jr., and Bing Crosby. But in addition, I also love the new ones like Harry Connick, Jr. and Michael Bublé.
I guess it just depends on whether you would rather listen to an old vinyl record or an iPod.
I thought I would take a moment & invite you to Come visit the best video chat on the net with a built in Oldies internet radio station !

I wish that stewey wasn't the logo for this group... it's supposed to be OLD and CROONERS. Now, onto the point.
Frank Sinatra had my heart ever since I heard Moonlight In Vermont and I Get Along Without You Very Well. My grandfather loved Frankie S (Alfred Hitchcock too, no...
The crooners and their love songs. Day dreaming that they were singing to my heart.
Stardust, The Very Thought of You ... Nat King Cole
You Belong To Me, In The Misty Moonlight ... Dean Martin
Harbor Lights, The Way You Look Tonight ... Bing Crosby
I've Got A Crush On You...
Nothing better then listening to the songs of the 1940" and 50's.Tony Bennett sand one of the most tear jerkin songs, " When Joanna Loved me", OMG ..it's beautiful. "My Love went to London " is incredible . Mel Torme, Sinatra...
Oh sure. I was bought up listening to them all. The Platters, Bing Crosby, Pat Boone, Johnny Ray, Paul Anka... etc etc... I have a huge collection of my Mums old records and cherish every single one of them.
