The song of the day for Saturday, May 19, 2018 is “The Best Is Yet To Come.”
About This Song
Written in 1959 by Cy Coleman and Carolyn Leigh, some say that “The Best is Yet to Come” was written for Tony Bennett. In any case, the song is strongly identified with him and he sings it at most of his concerts. Other recordings include those by Peggy Lee, Frank Sinatra, and Ella Fitzgerald.
About This Version
Tony Bennett recorded “The Best Is Yet To Come” in 1960, with a very effective arrangement by the composer, Cy Coleman. It was released as a single in that year and was also included on the 1962 album I Left My Heart in San Francisco.
“The Best Is Yet To Come,” as well as I Left My Heart in San Francisco, is available from iTunes.
I have a special video for you today of Tony Bennett, with his quartet, singing today’s song at the 2014 iTunes Festival in London. Enjoy!
