The song of the day for Wednesday, May 10, 2017 is “Some Other Time.”
About This Song
“Some Other Time” was written by Leonard Bernstein, with lyrics from Adolph Green and Betty Comden, in 1944 for the Broadway musical On The Town, the story of three sailors on leave in New York City and their romantic adventures. This song is sung at the end of the show by two of the couples. Inexplicably, this beautiful song was cut from the 1949 film version.
About This Version
Today’s version is from Tony Bennett and Bill Evans from their 1975 album The Tony Bennett / Bill Evans Album. It’s my favorite song from this album and is one of my favorite songs ever. I actually have a “Some Other Time” playlist on my iPod and I love each and every version. But this one is my favorite.
“Some Other Time,” as well as The Tony Bennett / Bill Evans Album, is available from iTunes.
