The song of the day for Monday, October 28, 2013 is “Mam’selle.”
About This Song
The song “Mam’selle” was written in 1947 by Edmung Goulding, with lyrics by Mack Gordon. It is a somewhat bittersweet love song; it first appeared in the 1947 movie The Razor’s Edge.
About This Version
On this day in 1959, Tony Bennett and Ralph Sharon went into the CBS 30th Street Studio with a stack of sheet music and proceeded to choose, arrange and record sixteen songs in a single session, twelve of which would be released on the 1961 album Tony Sings For Two. We are always happy to feature any song from this wonderful album as song of the day, but “Mam’selle” is a favorite of ours, even though it isn’t heard as often as the other fine songs on this album.
