Best Matt Monro Songs

Britgirl, to me your recommendation for this list was a sweet and pleasant music trip. Yes, there is nothing like the classics!

The Top Ten

1 Portrait of My Love

Beautiful song sung by the best singer this country has ever produced.

THANK YOU! You truly are a wonderful and beautiful soul! Wish I knew who you are. Some of my most favourite Matt Monro songs are listed here! Such a sweet voice and the most pleasant, uplifting lyrics accompanied by beautiful music. Pleased it was sweet for you, too!
Kisses! - Britgirl

Is the best singer who could sing this song.

Lovely song

2 Walk Away

Britgirl, it's simply lovely that you liked the list that you recommended to come in life. Walk Away is a very good song as well, you are right! You did so well and you added it. Thanks for your beautifully encouraging remarks. By the way, your Best Al Johnson Songs list is very unique. Bravo!

To the anonymous list-maker: do you know this song? Simply Beautiful! And if you like Al Jolson, I have a 'Best Of.. ' list. - Britgirl

3 Softly as I Leave You

A singer who is being forgotten.Never appreciated for his talent. KEEP HIS SONGS ALIVE

Fantastic song, absolutely lovely 💚🇮🇪

4 From Russia With Love

I'm a huge fan of James Bond movies and songs. This one was first Bond song and still remains one of the most unique & captivating tracks. Love it so much! - Irina2932

I prefer much more Jack Jones' version, but this is the original one and it's fine.

Good Bond song.

5 On Days Like These

Beautiful song definitely one to listen to in the car. Unless you're in a lamborghini headed for a tunnel in tuscany

Sublime! As 'ol blue eyes said; "the only goddam limey that could sing! "

I sometimes just have this playing quietly while I sit and just...think about things. It's very soothing on a broken heart...

I love this song. It reminds me of summer days, unrequited loves and images of driving in tuscany
