The Song of the Day for Wednesday, November 7, 2012 is The Best Is Yet To Come.
About The Best Is Yet To Come
This wonderful, upbeat song was written in 1959 by the Broadway song writing team of Cy Coleman and Carolyn Leigh, though it was not written for the stage. The song is strongly associated with Frank Sinatra, who recorded it in 1964 with the Count Basie Orchestra.
About This Version
Tony Bennett first recorded this song in 1960 as a single, arranged and conducted by Mr. Coleman. The same recording appeared on I Left My Heart In San Francisco, released in 1962. This version is from the same year, from Mr. Bennett’s legendary Carnegie Hall concert.
