Songs »I Can’t Give You Anything But Love

by Fats Waller and Una Mae Carlisle (1939)

The jazzy standard, I Can’t Give You Anything But Love, Baby gained popularity in Blackbirds of 1928, a popular music review. It’s the Fats Waller (who is debated to be the true original author of the song) and Una Mae Carlisle version that I love to listen to. Waller reportedly hated music that was too sentimental and would goof around in recordings so that he wasn’t asked to do them anymore. He’s plenty goofy and endearing in this one.
