The song of the day for Wednesday, February 27, 2013 is I Remember You.
About This Song
I Remember You was written in 1941, with music by Victor Schertzinger and lyrics by Johnny Mercer.

About This Version
As you might have already figured out, I can’t go more than a couple of weeks without featuring a Johnny Mercer song. Tony Bennett has only recorded I Remember You once, for his 2004 The Art of Romance. This album is one of my favorites as is this song. And the cover photo of Mr. Bennett is wonderful!
I Remember You, as well as the full The Art of Romance album, is available from iTunes.
