Billie Holiday - Stars Fell On Alabama Lyrics




We lived our little drama.
We kissed in a field of white
And stars fell on Alabama last night.

I can't forget the glamour.
Your eyes held a tender light
And stars fell on Alabama last night.

I never planned in my imagination
A situation so heavenly.
A fairy land where no one else could enter
And in the center, just you and me, dear.

My heart beat like a hammer.
My arms wound around you tight
And stars fell on Alabama last night.

We lived our little drama.
We kissed in a field of white
And stars fell on Alabama last night.

I can't forget the glamour.
Your eyes held a tender light
And stars fell on Alabama last night.

I never planned in my imagination
A situation so heavenly.
A fairy land where no one else could enter
And in the center, just you and me, dear.

My heart beat like a hammer.
My arms wound around you tight
And stars fell on Alabama last night.

    Will never forget you, Billie.

    Whenever I have a dinner party and it’s a perfect summer night with fireflies and vibrant pastel sunsets this finds its way tinkling over the patio, it generally makes people fall silent (I have a different version...slower and more melancholy) it’s such an evocative number LOVE IT!!

  31. Joao-Geraldo Damasceno

    Mon Dieu! Quelle beaute! Merci Billie, vous etes inoubliable!

  32. Arv H

    happy birthday Billy Holiday, You should be proud that a fourth generation is still listening to your jazz.

  33. David hamberg

    Billie was one of a kind. Her voice carried all her love, pain, suffering, heartache and tenderness when ever she sang. Thank God for recordings of her golden voice. She touched us all that have a soul. Enjoy!

  34. Bryan Andrade

    I ♥ IT.

  35. shihlin1

    Just came from listening to an hour of Sarah Vaughan's music, but OMG, Billie Holiday's versions just hit you in the gut when she sings.  Sarah Vaughan's voice is a thing of wonder, but her versions just don't hit you in the gut like they do when you listen to Billie Holiday.  Even here in 1957, when critics b*tched about how deteriorated Billie Holiday sounds, she is simply remarkable.  I dk about other versions of "Stars in Alabama", but her version here is FANTASTIC!!  At the end of its nearly 5-minute run, Billie Holiday leaves you breathless!  That's what Billie Holiday can do to you.  She takes you on an emotional journey that most singers simply cannot.

    Arv H

    @shihlin1 Dont compare the two (for ur own sake!!).. just make sure that you enjoy both Sarah and Bllly separately... Coz Billy is #1 and then u go straight to #10.. the gap is yet to be filled... :-)

    Melanie Hamilton

    Miss Holiday is unique. Her phrasing is sublime. If you want to see me fall apart, play "Strange Fruit" or "You've Changed". Billie was, still is, amazing.

    Angel Vasquez

    Renee olstead version was pretty good too.

    Sally Nicholls

    I love them both. Can't compare them, they are so different.

    ruth piwonka

    gosh. reading below, I am fascinated with comments. My first intro to Billie Holiday was in 1948 when I (then 8 yr old) was visiting my cousin in Saint Louis. Her wonderful mom ran a boarding house with a variety of residents. One of them was a total jazz junkie ... and in a very happy, joyous sort of way. — Sarah Vaughan and her magical voice is utterly beautiful and elegant, always a joy to hear. But, to paraphrase, she is no Billie Holiday. Billy Holiday is something else, a piece of work, a piece of heaven, I am certain. Her voice wraps around my head forever. ;-)

  36. Nerdy Doge

    "Paper Towns" anyone?

    AJ VargaLuna

    Maia Woods me

    MR.VANS

  39. dashercronin

    Perkins and Parish: Hats off to both for a great song open to many great interpretations.

  40. loulou2lou

  41. SENTINELREPORT

    Thank you for posting....

  42. Graham Bain

    Thats bullshit as much as I love Billie Holiday Ella and Louie's version is FAR superior!!!

    monica bella

    Ella who?

  43. ninjaunicornluv

    I read "Paper Towns" and picture myself dancing with this guy whose relation with me started with this book, to this song, in Sea World, after closing time.

  44. ninjaunicornluv

    A must read. I also loved "The Fault in Our Stars" and "Looking for Alaska". They are all fantastic and I would suggest them to anyone who appreciates extraordinary books.

  45. bigmarty11288

    @Gabrielle261 Don't know it. Is it good? Should I read it? When did it come out? Is it funny?

  46. killgreed

    God bless you all for living! Thanks for your participation!

  47. Gabrielle261
