The song of the day for Saturday, April 7, 2018 is “I’ll Be Seeing You.”
About This Song
“I’ll Be Seeing You” was written in 1938 by Sammy Fain (music) and Irving Kahal (lyrics). The song grew to its fame during World War II, when it became something of an anthem for soldiers serving overseas and the loved ones left at home. It’s been recorded by Billie Holiday, Al Hirt, Lisa Minelli, Frank Sinatra, Peggy Lee and Willie Nelson.
About This Version
“I’ll Be Seeing You,” as well as Perfectly Frank, is available from iTunes.
For our Saturday video, I have Tony’s friend Rosemary Clooney singing today’s song. I’m guessing it was filmed in the early 1950s.
