The song of the day for Thursday, July 16, 2020, is “Some Other Time.”

About This Song
“Some Other Time” was written by Leonard Bernstein, Adolph Green, and Betty Comden for the musical On The Town, the story of three sailors on leave in New York City and their romantic adventures. This song is sung at the end by two of the couples. Inexplicably, this beautiful song was cut from the 1949 film version.
About This Version
Tony Bennett and Bill Evans recorded “Some Other Time,” as well as all of the songs on The Tony Bennett/Bill Evans Album, over three days in June 1975.
“Some Other Time,” as well as The Tony Bennett/Bill Evans Album, is available from Apple Music.
Tony insisted that Bill include his solo piano version of “The Bad and the Beautiful” on their second album, Together Again.
