About This Song
“Funny Thing” was written in 1954 by Jimmy Van Heusen (writing as Arthur Williams) and Carl Sigman. In his autobiography, The Good Life, Tony Bennett wrote “I was especially fond of a song I recorded that year called ‘Funny Thing,’ which was credited to the excellent lyricist Carl Sigman and a little-known composer named ‘Arthur Williams.’ Actually, ‘Arthur Williams’ was a pseudonym for publishing reasons by the great tunesmith and my great friend Jimmy Van Heusen. I thought ‘Funny Thing’ was a great song and a likely hit, and I was disappointed when it didn’t go anywhere
