The song of the day for Tuesday, May 16, 2017 is “Lucky To Be Me.”
About This Song
Today’s song, “Lucky To Be Me,” is another song from the 1944 musical On The Town, written by Leonard Bernstein, Adolph Green and Betty Comden. Like our recently featured “Some Other Time,” this song was also cut from the 1949 film version. While I truly enjoyed Frank Sinatra and the rest of the cast in the film, from a musical standpoint, it’s a real bust. The original score is gorgeous and is worth listening to.
About This Version
Tony Bennett and Bill Evans recorded “Lucky To Be Me” in 1976 for their second album, Together Again, released in 1977.
“Lucky To Be Me,” as well as Together Again, is available from iTunes.
