The song of the day for Wednesday, March 13, 2019, is “Maybe This Time.”
About This Song
“Maybe This Time” by John Kander and Fred Ebb. This song appeared in the film version of was Cabaret. It was not written for the original Broadway production. Nor was it written especially for the film version; Kander and Ebb had written the song in 1963 for Kaye Ballard. It was therefore not eligible for consideration for an Academy Award. The song is, of course, widely associated with Liza Minnelli, who sang it in the film version of Cabaret. Tony Bennett sings the song regularly at his concerts.
