Song of the Day #1835

Song of the Day: Marty (“Hey, Marty”) [YouTube link] features the music of Harry Warren (who was once characterized on TCM by Michael Feinstein as the most successful writer of popular songs in the twentieth century!) and the lyrics of Paddy Chayefsky, who wrote the screenplay for this 1955 Best Picture (based on his 1953 teleplay). Ernest Borgnine in the title role earned a Best Actor Oscar. The theme can be heard in varied orchestrations penned by Roy Webb throughout the film, but the song itself can be heard over the end credits.
