The song of the day for Monday, September 6, 2021, is “There Will Never Be Another You.”
About This Song
“There Will Never Be Another You” was written by Harry Warren and Mack Gordon in 1942 for the movie Iceland, where it was introduced in the movie by Joan Merrill. Amazingly, this beautiful song was not nominated for an Academy Award. No matter. The song has become a serious jazz standard and has had many fine recordings, including Bennett’s 1959 recording with Count Basie and his 1962 improvisation with Dave Brubeck at the White House Sessions. Other significant recordings include those by Lionel Hampton, Chet Baker, Nat King Cole, and Sonny Rollins.
