The song of the day for Friday, June 23, 2023, is “Falling In Love With Love.”
About This Song
“Falling In Love With Love” was written in 1938 by Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart for the Broadway musical The Boys of Syracuse, which pairs a beautiful Rodgers waltz melody with the adult and rather a somber lyric by Hart: in other words, a perfect Rodgers and Hart song.
