About This Song
Today’s song, “I Guess I’ll Have To Change My Plan,” was written in 1929 by Arthur Schwartz and Howard Dietz. This song was written for the 1929 revue The Little Show, where it was introduced by Clifton Webb and was also a featured song in the 1953 movie The Band Wagon, where it was sung by Fred Astaire and Jack Buchanan. Even though the original title was “I Guess I’ll Have to Change My Plan,” it often sung with Plans.
