The song of the day for Friday, July 1, 2016 is “Falling In Love With Love.”
About This Song
“Falling In Love With Love” was written by Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart for the Broadway musical The Boys of Syracuse. The song pairs a beautiful Rodgers waltz melody with the adult and rather somber lyric by Hart: in other words, a perfect Rodgers and Hart song.
About This Version
Tony Bennett recorded “Falling In Love With Love” in 1965, with an arrangement by Don Costa. It was recorded for Bennett’s 1965 album If I Ruled The World: Songs For The Jet Set, but was not included in the original 1965 LP recorded. It was added to the first CD re-release of the album.
“Falling In Love With Love,” as well as If I Ruled The World: Songs for the Jet Set, is available from iTunes.
