In a quiet voice at the beginning, Sarah Vaughan explains that she is suffering from a cold. She then proceeds to belt out one of my favorite romantic songs, with more power than most completely physically well people could!

In my opinion, Vaughan was one of the best exponents of bending her voice with the lyrics. She took enormous liberties with the rhythm, but it always worked, and always enhanced the emotional content, and never more so than in this rendition of “Misty”.
