(I Could Only) Whisper Your Name

(Harry Connick Jr./Ramsey McLean)

This song written by Harry Connick Jr. and Ramsey McLean was included on his 1994 album She which was recorded with a new band and a new sound that concentrated more on the New Orleans rootsy music he would have known  when he was growing up.

The song that was originally performed on the album She was nearly 5 minutes long but it was curtailed to around 3:20 when it was chosen for inclusion on the 1994 soundtrack of the popular Jim Carrey film The Mask.  A year later it appeared on the compilation album Hollywood Soundtracks.

Finding its way onto the Billboard Hot 100 chart when it was released as a single it reached No. 67, which is the only time Harry has appeared on that particular chart.
