The song of the day for Sunday, December 9, 2018, is “Falling in Love with Love.”
About This Song
“Falling In Love With Love,” from the 1938 Broadway musical The Boys of Syracuse, pairs a beautiful Richard Rodgers waltz melody with the adult and rather somber lyrics by Lorenz Hart: in other words, a perfect Rodgers and Hart song.
About This Version
Tony Bennett recorded “Falling in Love with Love” in 1965, with a fine Don Costa arrangement, for his album If I Ruled the World: Songs for the Jet Set. The song didn’t make the cut for the LP release but was added for the 1997 CD release of the album.
