The Song of the Day for October 25, 2012 is Lost in the Stars.
About Lost In The Stars
Lost in the Stars, from the musical of the same name, was written by Kurt Weill, with book and lyrics by Maxwell Anderson. Based on Alan Paton’s book Cry The Beloved Country (written in 1948), the musical was produced on Broadway in 1949 and was Mr. Weill’s last work. Lost in the Stars movingly tells the story of apartheid in South Africa.
About This Version
Tony Bennett has recorded this song several times. My favorite recording is the version offered today: the single recorded in 1958 with the Count Basie Orchestra and Ralph Sharon, as compiled on Forty Years: The Artistry of Tony Bennett.
