The song of the day for Sunday, February 8, 2015 is “They All Laughed.”
About This Song
“They All Laughed” was written in 1937 by George and Ira Gershwin for the Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers movie Shall We Dance. It’s a delightful comic song, with some fun cultural references.
About This Version
Today’s version is from Cheek To Cheek, released last year by Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga. The terrific arrangement is the great Marion Evans. I am so glad they included this song on their album. I’ve heard Bennett sing it several times in concert and it’s a favorite of mine.
It’s Grammy Day and I am so looking forward to seeing Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga perform on the show tomorrow night. And pick up their award. They are going to be very busy — they also have a concert at the Wiltern tomorrow evening at 9:30, after the awards ceremony.
“They All Laughed,” as well as Cheek To Cheek, is available from iTunes.
