About This Song
“Don’t Wait Too Long” was written by Sunny Skylar. This song concerns a relationship between a younger and older person (“you are the summer and I am the autumn”) and the realization that the time together may not be as long as they’d wish. Other recordings of this song are by Frank Sinatra (1965, September of My Years) and Blossom Dearie (1964, May I Come In).
About This Version
Tony Bennett first recorded “Don’t Wait Too Long” in 1963 for his album The Many Moods of Tony. Today’s version, however, is from his 2014 album Cheek To Cheek, his duet album with Lady Gaga. Each singer had a solo recording for the album; this song is Bennett’s solo. Lady Gaga’s solo was “Ev’ry Time We Say Goodbye.”
“Don’t Wait Too Long,” as well as Cheek to Cheek, is available from iTunes.
