"Down In The Depths" by Lisa Stansfield

As performed by birthday gal Lisa Stansfield - in a video directed by Phillippe Gautier - Down in the Depths retains all of the power inherent in the performance of its originator, Ethel Merman, but without the latter's trademark bombast; as a result, you may or may not like this version, which Stansfield recorded for the 1990's AIDS relief album Red Hot + Blue, and which itself was named for Cole Porter's 1936 musical Red, Hot and Blue in which this song premiered.

Got that?
