The song of the day for Wednesday, February 1, 2017 is “The Lady’s In Love With You.”
About This Song
“The Lady’s In Love With You” was written by Burton Lane (music) and Frank Loesser (lyrics )for the 1939 film Some Like It Hot (not to be confused with the excellent 1959 Billy Wilder film), where it was introduced by Bob Hope and Shirley Ross. It’s been widely recorded, including those by Tony Bennett, Glenn Miller, Margaret Whiting, and Michael Feinstein.
About This Version
Tony Bennett recorded “The Lady’s In Love With You” in 1967 for his album Tony Makes It Happen! The arrangement is by our collaborator of the month, Marion Evans. I adore the way this song starts out — big and bold — and the listener knows a great ride is in store. Relatively short at 1:43 minutes, every second is perfect. I can’t think of better song to start with to honor the work of this arranger.
“The Lady’s In Love With You,” as well as Tony Makes It Happen!, is available from iTunes.
