The song of the day for Thursday, June 13, 2019, is “Falling In Love With Love.”
About This Song
“Falling In Love With Love” was written in 1938 by Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart for the musical The Boys of Syracuse. The song pairs a beautiful Rodgers waltz melody with the adult with somewhat somber lyric by Hart: in other words, a perfect Rodgers and Hart song.
