The song of the day for Wednesday, January 16, 2013 is Me, Myself and I.
About Me, Myself and I
Me, Myself and I (Are All in Love with You) was composed by Irving Gordon with lyrics by Allen Roberts and Allen S. Kaufman. It was first recorded in 1937 by Billie Holiday. The song has also been recorded by Benny Goodman, Lester Young and Ruby Braff.

Unforgettable won a Grammy Award in 1992 as Song of the Year for Natalie Cole’s album of the same name, as well as Best Traditional Pop Vocal Performance and Record of the Year. Note that Harold Jones, Tony Bennett’s current drummer, was Natalie Cole’s drummer for this album, as well as several other albums for Natalie Cole.
