I’ve had a hand-me-down audio recording of this for some time – one of my favourites, actually – but only recently realized that it was Annie Lennox singing it! The video backs that up. (It has been mistakenly attributed to Eva Cassidy. and I should hand in my gay card for not having disputed that.)
She recorded this song for the AIDS benefit album Red Hot + Blue, a tribute to songwriter Cole Porter. The video was directed by Ed Lachman.
P.S. I was at the doctor’s today. The shingles are nearly cleared up but the sinus infection needs another round of antibiotics.
