The song of the day for Friday, January 6, 2017 is “Falling In Love With Love.”
About This Song
“Falling In Love With Love,” from the 1938 Broadway musical The Boys of Syracuse, pairs a beautiful Richard Rodgers waltz melody with the adult and rather somber lyric by Lorenz Hart: in other words, a perfect Rodgers and Hart song.
About This Version
Tony Bennett recorded “Falling In Love With Love” in 1965 for the album If I Ruled The World: Songs For The Jet Set, but didn’t make the final LP release. It was added to the 1997 CD re-release. The arrangement is from Don Costa.
“Falling In Love With Love” as well as If I Ruled The World: Songs For The Jet Set, is available from iTunes.
