I was recently given the chance to review Emmy Rossum’s, Sentimental Journey.
I’m not sure who was more excited about it, me or David.
He’s a big Emmy Rossum fan but you didn’t hear that from me! (wink wink)
Rossum is also an acclaimed actress who currently stars in the Showtime series Shameless with William H. Macy. She also stars alongside Emma Thompson and Viola Davis in the upcoming feature film Beautiful Creatures, which hits theaters on February 13th.
I was a bit iffy at first but once we popped the CD into the player and we started driving, I really got into it. I love her as much as he does now!!
Sentimental Journey Track Listing:
- “Sentimental Journey” (Les Brown, Ben Homer, Arthur Green)
- “The Object Of My Affection” (Pinky Tomlin)
- “I’m Looking Over A Four Leaf Clover “(Mort Dixon, Harry M. Woods)

- “Autumn Leaves” (Joseph Kosma, Jacques Prévert)
- “Things” (Bobby Darin)
- “Pretty Paper” (Willie Nelson)
Out of all of these, #2 is DEFINITELY my personal favorite! SO catchy! So cute! It’s been stuck in my head for DAYS now!
“Each song needed to either lyrically or emotionally reflect the corresponding month,” Emmy explained. “Some songs were obvious fits, like Summer Wind for June, and Pretty Paper for December. Others songs were less literal fits. I chose Nobody Knows You (When You’re Down and Out) for September because, to me, the plaintive melody and lyric emotionally reflect the cold weather creeping in and the sense of melancholy we can get in the fall months.”
If you’re still unsure, head over HERE (another great one!!) and have a little listen. If you’re in love like I am, you can buy the whole CD here or here.
I highly recommend that you go do so!
Did you know that you could even follow her on twitter? Click HERE to do that.
I had no idea she was so multi-talented! And just simply gorgeous at that!
