The song of the day for Sunday, October 1, 2017 is “The Lady is a Tramp.”
About This Song
This song was written in 1937 by Lorenz Hart and Richard Rodgers 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
For our first song in the month honouring Lady Gaga, it’s only right that I feature the first song that Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga recorded together: “The Lady is a Tramp” for the album Duets II. The terrific arrangement is by the very terrific Marion Evans.
“The Lady is a Tramp,” as well as Duets II, is available from iTunes.
A lot of the songs that Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett have recorded also have great videos as well. I’ll be posting them all, whether it’s Saturday or not!
