Pain, Effort, Struggling...

Listening lately to Chet Baker, some of his words spoken as an intro to "I'm a Fool to Want You" have drawn my attention:
I don't think life is really worth all the pain, and effort, and struggling if you don't have somebody that you love very much...
To the above quote, I have to add the words of a friend:
... and who loves you back!
I hope you'll enjoy his song!


  1. You already know it's not my kind of music but "I think" he's completly right!!! Sometimes you need some words to remind your feelings...

  2. I'm definately a romantic... he also says... He is quite an artist, Alda!

  3. This YouTube video is offline, but here is another link:,i-m-a-fool-to-want-you,s3rrx.html --> Can someone please tell me where this exact performance is from? It's not from "As Time Goes By", it's a different version. THANKS

    1. There are certain clips, containing Chet Baker's music, removed from youtube on copyright grounds.
      The one proposed on seems to take an eternity to load...
      Even it will eventually load I am not an expert so I couldn't answer your question! :-( Sorry!

    2. I just replaced the old video (and link) with a valid one! Thank you for telling me about the broken link!
