About This Version
I’ve been a 1960s mood all day, having spent my lunch hour drooling over mid-century homes and furnishings (what I wouldn’t give to have my parent’s living room from 1963). Tony Bennett’s recording of The Lady’s In Love With You, from Tony Makes It Happen!, conjures up the 1960s perfectly for me. It swings and it’s a lot of fun with a great big band arrangement by the wonderful Marion Evans, who is arranging Tony’s next album with Lady Gaga.
The Lady’s In Love With You, as well as the full Tony Makes It Happen!, is available from iTunes.
