The song of the day for Wednesday, January 26, 2022, is “Falling In Love With Love.”
About This Song
“Falling In Love With Love” was written by Richard Rodgers and Larry Hart for the 1938 Broadway musical The Boys of Syracuse. This song pairs a beautiful Rodgers waltz melody with the adult and rather somber lyrics by Hart: in other words, a perfect Rodgers and Hart song.
About This Version
Tony Bennett recorded “Falling In Love With Love” in 1965 in sessions for If I Ruled The World: Songs For The Jet Set, but was not released on the original LP album. Instead, it was released on the 1997 CD re-release of the album. Don Costa wrote the arrangement and conducted the orchestra.
“Falling In Love With Love,” as well as If I Ruled The World: Songs For The Jet Set is available on Apple Music.
