The song of the day for Saturday, May 18, 2019, is “They Didn’t Believe Me.”
About This Song
“They Didn’t Believe Me” was written by Jerome Kern and Herbert Reynolds for the 1914 musical The Girl From Utah.
About This Version
Tony Bennett recorded “They Didn’t Believe Me” with The Bill Charlap Trio for the 2015 album The Silver Lining: The Songs of Jerome Kern. It amazes me that this song is over 100 years old, but with Bennett and Charlap, it doesn’t really show its age at all.
