About This Song
If there is a more perfect song to bring summer to life, I don’t know what it is. “It Was Me” was written by Gilbert Becaud as “C’etait Moi,” with English lyrics by Norman Gimbel. It’s a beautiful love song that brings memories of summers past and, maybe, to come.

This beautiful song is included in one of il maestro’s best albums! While the nation’s DJs have never featured the song , it is very deserving to be heard. Tony sings it with heart , feeling and much love!
Can’t say it enough, I love you Tony Bennett. You are the most talented male performer and singer ever. You’re voice is gorgeous.
