The song of the day for Saturday, July 11, 2015 is “Just In Time.”
About This Song
“Just In Time” was composed by Jule Styne with lyrics by Adolph Green and Betty Comden in 1956 for the hit musical Bells Are Ringing, where it was introduced by Judy Holliday and Sidney Chaplin. Holliday and Dean Martin sang it in the 1960 film version of Bells Are Ringing.
About This Version
Tony Bennett recorded “Just In Time” in 1956; he introduced many Broadway songs in the 1950s, including this song, “Strangers in Paradise” and many more. But today I chose his version from his 1962 Carnegie Hall concert. As much as I love Bennett’s studio recordings, I love his live performances even more.
“Just In Time,” as well as Tony Bennett At Carnegie Hall, is available from iTunes.
It’s video Saturday and today we present Tony Bennett and Micheal Bublé recording “Just In Time” in 2006 for Duets: An American Classic.
