Song of the Day #1890

Song of the Day: Not a Day Goes, words and music by Stephen Sondheim, is one of the highlights from the 1981 Broadway musical, “Merrily We Roll Along.” Today, Sondheim died at the age of 91. He leaves behind a vast musical legacy. This is only one of so many Sondheim songs I’ve featured through the years. In the original Broadway production, it was performed by Jim Walton [YouTube link]. But the song was recorded subsequently by singers as diverse as Carly Simon, Patti LuPone, Barbra Streisand, and Bernadette Peters (below) [YouTube links]. RIP, Sondheim.

Song of the Day #1889

Song of the Day: Morning Delight, words and music by Nerio Poggi, is performed by Papik (featuring Frankie Lovecchio). Hopefully, after a day and night of excess eating, you’ve got a little ‘morning delight‘ rather than a need for TUMS! From the 2014 album, “Sounds for the Open Road” [YouTube link], this one has a jazzy, soulful midtempo groove. Perfect for The Day After Thanksgiving. Enjoy the studio version and a live performance as well [YouTube links].
