Mouseketeers: My Love

Justin Timberlake: My Love


Justin Timberlake is arguably the most important popular music figure of the century, his only real rivals for the title being Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley, and the Beatles. In a professional career that has lasted almost 10 years, he has demonstrated a remarkable ability to maintain his appeal and pursue his musical goals despite often countervailing trends. He came to the fore during the boy band era of the 1990s, and has continued to attract listeners during the post-Napster era of the new century. He was able to take the work of great theater composers, such as Jerome Kern, Irving Berlin, George Gershwin, Cole Porter, and Richard Rodgers, and reinterpret their songs for modern audiences in a way that led to their rediscovery and their permanent enshrinement as classics. On CD's and in live performances, on film and television, he has defined pop music as we know it.

Oh… and there’s a really cool Rap segue on the attached tune. I'm pretty sure it was written by Cole Porter. Check it, yo!
