Overview

16 Most Requested Songs is a mid-priced collection that spotlights many of Billie Holiday's best-known and most popular performances for Columbia Records, including "Body and Soul," "The Way You Look Tonight," and "Easy Living." 16 Most Requested Songs is far from a perfect retrospective of her total career, but it is a nice sampler of good performances and songs by famous songwriters.
