The song of the day for Wednesday, November 25, 2020, is “Some Other Time.”
As is so often the case, once I feature a song from this album, I can’t let it go after just one song. Today is one of those days.
About This Song
“Some Other Time” was written by Leonard Bernstein, with lyrics by Adolph Green and Betty Comden, in 1944 for the Broadway 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.
