The song of the day for Monday, May 11, 2015 is “He Loves And She Loves.”
About This Song
George and Ira Gershwin wrote “He Loves and She Loves” for the 1927 Broadway musical Funny Face, which starred Fred and Adele Astaire. This song was used in the 1957 movie of the same name, which starred Fred Astaire and Audrey Hepburn. Other than the title and handful of the original songs, the film and the musical bear no resemblance to each other. But the songs are great.
About This Version
This lovely ballad comes seventh on “Steppin’ Out” and is a nice change from the uptempo “A Shine On Your Shoes.” It’s a wonderful arrangement; Ralph Sharon’s piano is exquisite. And Tony sings the verse! I love when singers sing the verse.
“He Loves And She Loves,” as well as Steppin’ Out, is available from iTunes.
Here is Fred Astaire and Audrey Hepburn from the 1957 Funny Face.
