Music Review: 'Lounge-A-Palooza'
With its sly, unexpected matches of songs to artists, Lounge-A-Palooza breathes new life into the cocktail party. Highlights include Steve and Eydie’s straight-faced take on Soundgarden’s ”Black Hole Sun” and a Latin-tinged ”She Don’t Use Jelly” from Ben Folds Five. Cute title aside, this CD avoids lounge’s smarmy irony while retaining its sense of fun. B+
