About This Song
“My Foolish Heart” was written by Victor Young and Ned Washington for a widely-panned film of the same name, based on a J.D. Salinger short story. Time magazine excoriated the score: “nothing offsets the blight of such tear-splashed excesses as the bloop-bleep-bloop of a sentimental ballad on the soundtrack.”
About This Version
Tony Bennett and Bill Evans recorded “My Foolish Heart” in June 1975 for their first album, The Tony Bennett/Bill Evans Album.
“My Foolish Heart,” as well as The Tony Bennett/Bill Evans Album, is available from iTunes.
