Everything Happens to Me (3:38)

Cover of My Funny Valentine

From My Funny Valentine and 68 other releases

One of the most strangely attractive sounds in all of music is Chet Baker’s wispy voice wrapping itself around an appropriate lyric. Tom Adair and Matt Dennis’ paean to hard luck is a more than worthy recipient of the Baker treatment.

    incredible but a sad reminder of baker's gradual decay. You can hear in this version the remnants of his inability to bridge the gaps between his usual smooth transitions due to the destruction of his teeth from a drug related beating . I'd never noticed the difference so clearly

    Featured in the film 'The Guard'. I think I could forgive my assassin if he told me not to stop the record as he too liked Chet Baker.

    There is something so sad about the way he sings but it is so mesmerizing and full of sentiment. It's unfortunate how we died and how is life took a turn for the worse. He's awesome!

    Kinda like some songs from the 1940's. Smooth and relaxing.

    his singing is so relaxed. Like an opposite to his quite short life. Chet Baker is a musical genious.

    I just noticed the version of this song that's on here is different from the version I have. My copy (just a random MP3 i got years and years ago) is almost a minute and a half longer at 6:25 and includes an instrumental introduction featuring Chet on Trumpet. Anyone know where this one's from? I like the version I have better than the one on this site, to tell the truth.
