Song of the Day #1826

Song of the Day: Come Rain or Come Shine, music by Harold Arlen, lyrics by Johnny Mercer, made its debut in the 1946 musical, “St. Louis Woman.” The song first hit the pop charts in a rendition by Margaret Whiting with the Paul Weston Orchestra. Other notable recordings include those by Billie Holiday, Judy Garland, Ray Charles, Ella Fitzgerald, and Barbra Streisand, and among instrumentalists: Bill Evans, Joe Pass, and Return to Forever (with vocalist Gayle Moran) [YouTube links]. But today, I highlight a recording from the 1962 album, “Sinatra and Strings“—to mark the 105th anniversary of the birth of the Chairman of the Board. Check it out on YouTube.

Happy Hanukkah!

Happy Hanukkah to all my Jewish friends! Lord knows, we all need a Festival of Lights!

Song of the Day #1825

Song of the Day: See Love [lyric and song link], words and music by Jodi Arlyn, appears on the artist’s 2012 album, “Stars Up On the Ceiling.” I’ve known Jodi for umpteen years as both a colleague and friend at NYU. I had no clue that she had another life beyond the university! What a sweet discovery! Check it out!

Song of the Day #1824

Song of the Day: Girlfriend, words and music by Jason Kasher Hindlin and Charlie “Perfect Pitch” Puth, who turns 29 today. This is really a fun song with an adorable music video (even with the Old School Tube Socks!). Check out the video single, the Haywyre Remix and a live performance of the song on the The Late, Late Show with James Corden [YouTube links]. Happy birthday to this genuinely talented musical prodigy.

Yes, It’s Come To This!
