The song of the day for Saturday, October 25, 2014 is “The Lady Is A Tramp.”
About This Song
Written by Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart in 1937, “The Lady Is A Tramp” was written for the Broadway musical Babes In Arms, where it was introduced by Mitzi Green. The song was meant as a spoof on the high society of New York, where the singer is clear about what she likes to do, no matter what everyone else is doing. “The Lady Is A Tramp” has been sung by Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald and Lena Horne.
About This Version
Today’s version is the duet with Lady Gaga from Bennett’s Duets II. As soon as I heard this song, I knew I wanted to hear more of them and, thankfully, now we have Cheek To Cheek to celebrate as well. It’s wonderful to see these two wonderful singers having so much fun with this song.
“The Lady Is A Tramp,” as well as the album Duets II, is available from iTunes.
And because it is Saturday, here’s the video version of this song:
