The song of the day for Sunday, August 12, 2018 is “Some Other Time.”
About This Song
“Some Other Time” was written for the musical On The Town by Leonard Bernstein, with lyrics by Adolph Green and Betty Comden. On The Town is the story of three sailors on leave in New York City and their romantic adventures. This song is sung at the end by two of the couples. Inexplicably, this beautiful song was cut from the 1949 film version.
About This Version
Tony Bennett and Bill Evans recorded “Some Other Time” in 1975 for their first album The Tony Bennett/Bill Evans Album. This song is a favorite of mine and this recording is just perfect.
“Some Other Time,” as well as The Tony Bennett/Bill Evans Album, is available from iTunes.
