The song of the day for Tuesday, September 22, 2015 is “Don’t Wait Too Long.”
About This Song
“Don’t Wait Too Long,” written by Sunny Skylar, concerns a relationship between a younger and older person (“you are the summer and I am the autumn”) and the realization that the time together may not be as long as they’d wish. Other recordings of this song are by Frank Sinatra (1965, September of My Years) and Blossom Dearie (1964, May I Come In).
About This Version
Tony Bennett first recorded this song on September 11, 1963 for the album The Many Moods of Tony, with an arrangement by Dick Hyman. He recently recorded it again for Cheek To Cheek. I really love this romantic arrangement.
“Don’t Wait Too Long,” as well as The Many Moods of Tony, is available from iTunes.
