This week’s tune was written by Cy Coleman & Carolyn Leigh for the hit 1962 musical Little Me starring Sid Caesar (nominated for 10 Tony’s, one win for the legendary Bob Fosse). Tony Bennett and Peggy Lee were buddies with Cy and both had hit pop versions of the song the following year; Ella Fitzgerald also had considerable success with it in 1966.
This version celebrates its’ 7th birthday tomorrow and features the lovely and always awesome Jill Sobule on vocals, Benmont Tench of the Heartbreakers on keys, Jay Bellerose on drums and an arrangement by producer Dave Palmer. From 2009′s critically acclaimed tribute album: The Best Is Yet To Come, The Songs of Cy Coleman.
Check out this clip of (the incredibly sexy) Joey Heatherton performing the song on a 1965 episode of the Dean Martin Show!
