Carmen McRae

Carmen Mercedes McRae (April 8, 1920 – November 10, 1994) was an American jazz singer, composer, pianist, and actress. Considered one of the most influential jazz vocalists of the 20th century, it was her behind-the-beat phrasing and her ironic interpretations of song lyrics that made her memorable. McRae drew inspiration from Billie Holiday, but established her own distinctive voice. She went on to record over 60 albums, enjoying a rich musical career, performing and recording in the United States, Europe, and Japan. more »

Oh, the good life, full of fun
Seems to be the ideal
Yes, the good life lets you hide 
All the sadness you feel

You won't really fall in love
For you can't take the chance
So be honest with yourself
Don't try to fake romance

It's the good life 
To be free and explore the unknown
Like the heartaches 
When you learn you must face them alone

Please, remember, I still love you
And in case you don't know
Well, just wake up
Kiss the good life "hello"
