Michael Bublé and Tony Bennett have done a duet to Don’t Get Around Much Anymore. I’ma say it again: Michael BUBLE and TONY FREAKIN‘ BENNETT did a duet to Don’t Get Around Much Anymore. You might have to watch an ad. What were you really going to with those ten seconds anyway? The video, which has just as much swank as these boys do, is free on itunes this week. No further explanation needed. GO!

Originally written in French, the English version has been sung by greats like Ella Fitzgerald, Shirley Bassey, Ray Charles, Nat King Cole, Bing Crosby, The Drifters, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Barbra Streisand… the list goes on and on and on.
