The song of the day for Saturday, September 8, 2018, is “Love Is Here To Stay.”
About This Song
“Love Is Here To Stay” was written in 1937 for The Goldwyn Follies movie by George and Ira Gershwin. The song wasn’t released until George Gershwin’s death from brain cancer on July 11, 1937; he was just 39 years old.
Today’s song is also known as “Our Love Is Here To Stay,” but the published title of the song omits the “Our.”

I found this lovely video of Rosemary Clooney singing “Love Is Here to Stay” from a 1993 appearance on the White House lawn. The quality of the video isn’t great, but Rosemary is radiant.
