The song of the day for Friday, October 20, 2017 is “Don’t Wait Too Long.”
About This Song
“Don’t Wait Too Long” was written by Sunny Skylar. This song concerns a relationship between a younger and older person (“you are the summer and I am the autumn”) and the realization that the time together may not be as long as they’d wish. Other recordings of this song are by Frank Sinatra (1965, September of My Years) and Blossom Dearie (1964, May I Come In).
About This Version
Tony Bennett has recorded “Don’t Wait Too Long” twice: the first time in 1963 for The Many Moods of Tony and again in 2014 as a solo on Cheek to Cheek. Today I’m featuring the 2014 version; it’s a lovely arrangement by Jorge Calandrelli and beautifully sung by Mr. Bennett.
“Don’t Wait Too Long,” as well as Cheek to Cheek, is available from iTunes.
