The song of the day for Thursday, February 9, 2017 is “Some Other Time.”
About This Song
Today’s song, “Some Other Time,” was written in 1944 by Leonard Bernstein with lyrics by Adolph Green and Betty Comden for the musical On The Town. On The Town is the story of three sailors on leave in New York City and their romantic adventures. This song is sung at the end by two of the couples. Inexplicably, this beautiful song was cut from the 1949 film version.
About This Version
Tony Bennett and Bill Evans recorded “Some Other Time” in June 1975 for their first album The Tony Bennett / Bill Evans Album.
“Some Other Time,” as well as The Tony Bennett / Bill Evans Album, is available from iTunes.
Tony Bennett’s version of this song is my favorite. Coming in second is this recording by Blossom Dearie.
