The song of the day for Monday, March 11, 2019, is “Time After Time.”
About This Song
“Time After Time” was written in 1947 by Jule Styne (music) and Sammy Cahn (lyrics) for the movie It Happened in Brooklyn. The song was introduced by Frank Sinatra and was a major hit for him; it has been widely recorded by many artists. In his fine book The Jazz Standards, Al Gioia quotes Jule Styne as saying “It’s a man’s song — ‘Time After Time.’ When a woman sings it, it is drained of all its power, so to speak. The girls can’t do it.”Well, tell that to Sarah Vaughan, Ella Fitzgerald, Carmen McRae, Anita O’Day, and Cyndi Lauper.
