The song of the day for Friday, August 25, 2023, is “Some Other Time.”
Today we are honoring the composer of today’s song, Leonard Bernstein, who was born on August 25, 1918, in Lawrence, Massachusetts. His musical career was legendary: conductor of the New York Philharmonic Orchestra, composer of classical music and musical theatre scores, pianist, lecturer, and author.

About This Song
“Some Other Time” was written by Leonard Bernstein, with lyrics by Adolph Green and Betty Comden, for the 1944 musical On The Town, the story of three sailors on leave in New York City and their romantic adventures. This song is sung at the end by two of the couples. Inexplicably, this beautiful song was cut from the 1949 film version.
