  1. Wonderful to see this back… would be wonderful if you had the lyrics as a downloadable PDF… id love it on my devices 🙂

  2. If you use a photograph of Milt Hinton (we own copyright), why don’t you AT LEAST give him credit? It’s the last photo on you website. You could also provide the link to

    • Dear Mr. Berger

      First of all, let me tell you that Billieholidaysongs is a non-profit tribute site to Lady Day that is running for almost 10 years. It is the result of my personal efforts.

      I didn´t know that particular image was Milt Hilton’s copyright. Sorry for that. I have just deleted the image from my website.

      All the best,

  3. What an amazing site. Ive been a BH fan for many years and this is the icing on the cake. Brilliant.

  4. What happened to Billie Holiday’s Christmas tunes?! You used to hear in the stores. She had some dynamite numbers with tight backup jazz bands.

    • Dear Patrick,
      actually Billie Holiday never recorded Xmas tunes. You probably have heard tunes with Ella Fitzgerald, who recorded two LP albums.

  5. Paulo, congratulations on a fabulous site, your knowledge and dedication are astounding and greatly appreciated – a huge THANK YOU for sharing this wonderful resource with a world of Lady Day fans. Best wishes from Australia!!

  6. I believe that I have loved her most of my life Her songs her beauty and her phrasing no body did it better . I sing most of her songs and could not really choose one although Ill Wind is very emotional Thank you I am new to this site

  7. Dear Paulo. Thank you so much for creating this Amazing site in honor of the renowned, Lady Day (Billie Holiday).. What a contribution. I visit often, however it’s never long enough for me. You are a very giving Man. Thank you again, I’ll be in touch soon.

  8. Pozdrawiam z Polski i bardzo dziękuję za całość co obejmuję życie BILLIE HOLIDAY naprawdę doceniam ogrom pracy jaką Pan włożył w ten portal ku uciesze wszystkich fanów LADY DAY. Życze zdrowia i tak jak każdemu fanowi jej śpiewu życzę wszystkim wzruszeń przy kolejnym odsłuchiwaniu jej utworów. Na bazie Pana chronologii proponuję się określić co mam a co mi jeszcze brakuję by uzupełnić Pozdrawiam Leszek Garstka z Warszawy.
