Recommend any Judy Garland songs?
I love Judy's fun, musical songs but I truly love her more slow, lounge type songs- they're so heartfelt.
The songs i have on my iPad that i love are:
"Don't tell me that story"*******
"Just in time"
"I can't give you anything but love"
"Just a Memory"*****
"Then You've never been blue"******
My favorite ones are the ones with the stars.
My favorite one is "Then You've Never Been Blue," it's so amazing. Those songs are like when you're sitting outside at night with a cigar and beer, so cool and lounge-y :)
I noticed my favorite songs of hers, are not ones she's famous for.
Can you recommend more songs like the ones listed above?? Thanks!

I really love all of the songs you listed too. "Just A Memory" and "Then You've Never Been Blue" are from the same album, Alone (1957):
Have you heard the other songs on this album? They are absolutely wonderful, and they are pretty similar to the ones that you marked as your favorites.
I in particular love "Blue Prelude" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qPtocaQEVm4
and "How About Me?" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I69a4GRx7qQ
You might also like some of Judy's other songs from the 50s. I think that at that point her voice was the most powerful and also the most emotional. Her voice sounds at its peak in "Heartbroken" from 1953: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6p6QafiyUGk
I also adore "If Love Were All." It seems like Judy performed this one at numerous concerts and on her television show (She must have liked this one too!), but here she is performing it at Carnegie Hall during the famous 1961 concert: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3z7C_TWXdGY
Oh, and I think this performance of "If I Forget You" from 1940 is incredible:
Also, here is "My Ship" from a 1953 radio production of Lady in the Dark:
And you might also like "Why Was I Born?" (1946):
And I always thought this one was really beautiful and touching: "Wish You Were Here," from a 1952 radio broadcast: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jdZQa5b0_-k
I'm probably forgetting some (pretty much all of Judy Garland's songs are wonderful, after all), but I hope you enjoy these!
