Great "Ac-Cent-Tchu-Ate The Positive" Playlist

I didn't know any good performances for this song until I looked for them on Lala.

I'm really tickled to find that Aretha and Susanah McCorkle did such nice versions of this. Ella's version is fun, with the added benefit that she sings the beginning verse that the rest of these performers skip.

Bing is added for male vocal representation. He's swinging and cool.

Oscar Peterson and Herb Ellis are the only great instrumentalists I found in my quick search who together covered this. It does sound like something Nat King Cole would have liked, so maybe that explains Oscar's interest, since he was such a Nat King Cole enthusiast.
