Rossum, Emmy - These Foolish Things (Remind Me Of You) Lyrics

A cigarette that bears a lipsticks' traces
An airline ticket to romantic places
And still my heart has wings
These foolish things remind me of you

A tinkling piano in the next apartment
Those stumbling words that told you what my heart meant
A fairgrounds' painted swing
These foolish things remind me of you

You came, you saw, you conquered me
When you did that to me
I knew somehow this had to be

The winds of March that make my heart a dancer
A telephone that ring, but whose to answer?
Oh, how the ghost of you clings
These foolish things remind me of you

You came, you saw, you conquered me
When you did that to me
I knew somehow this had to be

The winds of March that make my heart a dancer
A telephone that ring, but whose to answer?
Oh, how the ghost of you clings
These foolish things remind me of you
Remind me of you
Remind me of you
They remind me of you

    You're obviously tone deaf. GTFO.

  8. y tho

    omg this is amazing xD

  9. Thomas Leary

    Wow! What a great rendition of this wonderful song. It's right up there with any version - including Crosby and Fitzgerald. I knew Emmy had a superb voice from hearing her (and seeing her) in the films 'Songcatcher' and 'The Phantom of the Opera.' Can't wait to hear the rest of 'Sentimental Journey!'

  10. Jaxson Cruz

    She is the best on shameless. And kills it on the microphone.Ur the Best Emmy

  11. POTUS 101

  12. redsal09

    Did I need another reason to love her ?

  13. Harry Reams

    Great album. If you don't have it you should get it. Every wonderfully classic number on it is a unique winner.

  14. Dave Snyder

    Prettiest brown eyes

  15. Ricardo Sauer

    Hermosa interpretación.

  16. I have no name

    She looks like Imogene heap

  17. Renee Mascurine

    Again,never heard of her, first time listening to her, beautifully sung and a lovely voice. Renee M

  18. Panda Joy

    I watched a movie called These foolish things (2005) on youtube but the end credits were cut short. I'm trying to find the version that is in the end credits....can anyone help me? This version is beautiful, but I want the other one for my wedding. Please 🙇🏾‍♀️

    A cigarette that bares a lipstick's traces
    An airline ticket to romantic places
    Still my heart has wings
    These foolish things remind me of you
    A tinkling piano in the next apartment
    Those stumblin' words that told you what my heart meant
    A fair ground painted swings
    These foolish things remind me of you
    You came, you saw, you conquered me
    When you did that to me
    I knew somehow this had to be
    The winds of march that made my heart a dancer
    A telephone that rings but who's to answer
    Oh, how the ghost of you clings
    These foolish things remind me of you

  20. Caroline Stone

    Fantastic talent. Must buy the CD.

  21. MrJimmienoone

    Perfection. She sings with that kind of innocent lasciviousness which could disarm the most ardent misogynist.

  22. MrJimmienoone

    Perfection. She sings that with a kind of innocent lasciviousness which could disarm the most ardent misogynist.

  23. Carmen Demetrio

    Canción escrita en 1936, por Jack Strachey, Eric Maschwitz y Harry Link. (Ingleses)😉
    (Escuchen la versión de “Jeff and Joel’s House Party..!👍🏻)

  24. RedDawg

    "What'll it be, stranger?" *Whiskey!*

  25. Candy Banks

    Harkins back to an age where acting wasn't enough. You had to be multi-talented.

  26. Gia Joseph

    HOW is that I haven't listen to this before? Is GREAT! BEAUTIFUL!

  27. Lalalalala!

    lol it would be funny if she sang this during karaoke on the show cuz it doesn't match her character at all

  28. Darina Rossier

    So classy :)

  29. Zachary Schulze

    Lovely voice, soul and spirit!

  30. what blank?

    so relaxing...

  31. neworleansb0unce

    this is trash. what are these pop vocals on a jazz track? no thank you.


    This song is older than you are? maybe I'm confused by the way you worded your comment? How is this trash?

  32. Neo Kunene

    Her voice fills me with a nostalgia I never got to live through

  33. hope olson


  34. Hugh Carpenter

    ★★★★ Outstanding delivery! ♥

  35. MrRotoplasm

    Truly phenomenal.

  36. George Ehret

    Female Dean Martin right here

  37. Patricia Peters

    Why doesn't this have more views?

  38. Lydia Hunt

    Aw I love how she's keeping Jazz alive. Gorgeous girl.

  41. gloobnord

    from "Tokyo Joe," Bogart, Florence Marly, 1949. Dig It!!!!

  42. Béla Lőrincz

    I liked this kind performance, because she had a lovely voice and a good singer                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   

  43. Carissa Ferguson

    Any piano arrangements of this particular rendition? 

  44. Noble Vendetta

    Late to the party but she has a beautiful regal voice, I had no idea Fiona could sing lol.


    ...............You do know that one of her breakout film roles was Christine in "Phantom of the Opera"? Do yourself a favor and see it---her voice is jaw-droppingly crystal clear and heart-melting! And she was only 19 at the time!


    @Islander255 That's not entirely true, when they filmed it she was only 16! Even more amazing. 


    I would recommend you also check out her other album, "Inside Out". It's more of a new age album (similar to the likes of Enya). Emmy actually wrote many of the tracks on the albums. 

    embargoman is a hypocritical, ugly inbred fuck!!!!

    +locutus94 she was in the movie, "Nola" and, "Dare"

    Bannor Haruchai

    +Islander255 Listening to her speak in roles & interviews doesn't even hint at the warm tone & clarity of her singing voice.

  45. locutus94

    Every time I get in my car, this is pretty much the only album I listen to. I've listened to it at least 10 times this summer all the way through so far. 

  46. boonestead

    that picture would look great as a print hanging on my wall

  47. Draghera

    Heart You, Manuela!

  48. chandler bing

    i wish more people knew about her beautiful, unique voice (:

    Stephan Couderq

    I only found out today. Big fan of Shameless. She should since more jazzy tunes, she does them justice.

    The Birds My Word

    I wouldn't say beautiful and I definitely wouldn't say unique. This is the only song that she actually sounds good in

  49. Flower Barraza

    ♥Her voice is just so smooth,sexy,catchy, and classy
    Just beautiful ♥

  50. Space Gandalf

    I love how this sounds like it came out from an old radio

    Sophie Evans

    I read somewhere that she had the band play in the background while she sang into a vintage mic during recording. 😊

  51. Cal

    ConArtistFilms stated that this was a Frank Sinatra song. Not true. This great song goes back to 1936 to the days of the Benny Goodman Orchestra with the voice of the great Helen Ward laying down the voice work. Franks recording was, indeed fine, but this is not Franks song. Emmy's version is tremendous, but so was the James Brown recording of 1963. This song has had some great interpretations over the years and it belongs to no one particular artist. 

    tokyodave 66

    Your'e right, it's a great old song with a wonderful back story involving American movie star Anna Mae Wong (the supposed inspiration for the song). My favorite version is from an album called "Jazz A Saint Germain." performed by Jane Birkin and Jimmy Rowles. Give it a listen!

  52. Nisa C

    It's new, yet it sounds so old.
    It's always amazing when both worlds can come together so beautifully.

  53. TheSonglvr

    Sexy, isn't it?!!

  54. Fabio Wilbert

    How can I like this 10000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000.......times ?

  55. chandler bing

    i love her so much. she's so naturally talented. i wish she was more known and that more people could recognize her rare talent.

  56. MoonStone

  59. Tumealicious21

  60. Emily Popovich

    I've loved Emmy's voice for almost ten years now. I first heard her sing in The Phantom of the opera and she was amazing. She still is to this day her voice has matured a lot since she was sixteen and she manages to amazed with how awesome her voice is.

  61. Samual Taganeca

    I am in love with Emmy, She is so damn sexy!

  62. Kayle P

  94. Liz J

    Phantom of the Opera, Inside Out and now this? Is there any genre of music Emmy Rossum can't do?
