The song of the day for Saturday, November 7, 2015 is “Anything Goes.”
About This Song
Today’s song, “Anything Goes,” was written by Cole Porter in 1934. In Anything Goes, Cole Porter and book writers Guy Bolton and P.G. Wodehouse created one ofthe great musical comedy characters of all time: Reno Sweeney, played by Ethel Merman in the original 1934 production. The score contains many of Porter’s most popular songs, including “I Get a Kick Out You,” “You’re The Top,” and “Blow, Gabriel, Blow.”
About This Version
Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga recorded “Anything Goes” in 2014 for their first album together, “Cheek To Cheek.” The arrangement is from Marion Evans. As you may know, Bennett and Gaga are currently recording their second album, this time consisting of songs by Cole Porter, again arranged by Marion Evans. Today’s song is, I hope, a taste of what’s to come. I know I can hardly wait. The chemistry between these two performers is wonderful!
“Anything Goes,” as well as Cheek To Cheek, is available from iTunes.
It’s Saturday and here’s your video. Enjoy!
