The 20th Annual Film Music February Festival / Song of the Day #2085

Song of the Day: Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (“Someday My Prince Will Come”), words by Larry Morey, music by Frank Churchill, was first heard in this classic Walt Disney 1937 film. The original version featured in the film is sung by Adriana Caselotti [YouTube link]. While this movie and a promised 2025 reboot have had their share of controversy, this timeless song has become a part of the Great American Songbook. It has been covered by scores of artists, including Dave Brubeck, Bill Evans (below), Miles Davis, and Chick Corea, among jazz instrumentalists, and singers as varied as Barbra Streisand and Sinead O’Connor (in a duet with Andy Rourke) [YouTube links]. Today marks the beginning of my 20th consecutive year celebrating cinematic music in all its hues. I’ll be featuring a few additional songs from the Disney library, along with other original or adapted songs and themes from memorable film soundtracks and scores.
