The song of the day for Sunday, August 4, 2013 is “The Best Is Yet To Come.” Today’s song is dedicated to my co-blogger and friend, Lesley, whose birthday is today. Happy birthday, dear friend.
About This Song
“The Best Is Yet To Come” was written by the great songwriting team of Cy Coleman and Carolyn Leigh. Some have said that this song was written for Tony Bennett. If not, it is certainly closely identified with him; he performs it regularly in concert today.
About This Version
Today’s version is the singles version, recorded in 1960 and released in early 1961. When Tony Bennett sings this song, I always believe that it’s completely, absolutely true. This recording was arranged and conducted by Cy Coleman.
“The Best Is Yet To Come,” as well as all of the singles on Columbia Singles, Volume 6, is available from iTunes.
