Saturday Afternoon Jazz: Twentieth Century Blues by Noel Coward


The song was written by Noel Coward for his hit 1931 play Cavalcade. This first clip is from the 1933 film of Coward’s play in which Ursula Jeans appeared and performed the song

This second clip is of Marianne Faithfull performing the same song, for me this is an outstanding interpretation

Then there is this one of Coward himself

Contrasting performances of a great song
