Song of the Day #2111

Song of the Day: Kings Row (“Soundtrack Suite”) [YouTube link], composed by Erich Wolfgang Korngold, is derived from one of the signature film scores from this cinematic musical giant. The acclaimed 1942 melodrama is famous for having given us Ronald Reagan‘s line, “Where’s the rest of me?“, which became the title of his 1965 autobiography. Korngold’s notable score influenced the John Williams-penned opening theme to “Star Wars”.
