The song of the day for Wednesday, May 27, 2015 is “I Guess I’ll Have To Change My Plan.”
About This Song
“I Guess I’ll Have To Change My Plan” was written by Arthur Schwartz and Howard Dietz for the 1929 revue The Little Show, where it was introduced by Clifton Webb. It was a featured song in the 1953 movie The Band Wagon, where it was sung by Fred Astaire and Oscar Levant. Even though the original title was “I Guess I’ll Have to Change My Plan,” it more often sung with Plans.
About This Version
This is a nice, slow version of this song … a lovely sense of regret in the singing. I’m used to hearing this song done faster, but I really like this tempo.
“I Guess I’ll Have To Change My Plan,” as well as Steppin’ Out, is available from iTunes.
In our video clip from The Band Wagon, we have a lovely duet with Fred Astaire and Jack Buchanan — two of the classiest guys ever.
