The song of the day for Tuesday, October 4, 2022, is “Don’t Get Around Much Anymore.”
About This Song
“Don’t Get Around Much Anymore” was written in 1940 by Duke Ellington as an instrumental with the title “Never No Lament.” Bob Russell’s lyrics came in 1942 and the song’s title was changed to the current “Don’t Get Around Much Anymore.” The somewhat sad lyric of the jilted lover who would just rather stay home bumps up against the very cheerful tune.
About This Version
Tony Bennett recorded “Don’t Get Around Much Anymore” on January 27, 1967, for the album Tony Makes It Happen. Marion Evans wrote the very fine arrangement.
“Don’t Get Around Much Anymore,” as well as Tony Makes It Happen! is available on Apple Music.
