Well, love often shows a funny return.
The brighter it glows, the longer you burn,
and Lord only knows love has little concern for the fools of the road!
But that’s how it goes, you live and you learn,
the rules of the road!
This week’s selection is the Cy Coleman/Carolyn Leigh classic, The Rules of the Road sung by Coleman’s lifelong compatriot, the great Tony Bennett.
We’ve featured Nikka Costa and Rosemary Clooney’s renditions of this tune in the past, but this week we’ve got to give a shout out to the release of: Tony Bennett Live at The Sahara: Las Vegas 1964 just released yesterday for the first time as a stand-alone album. The album captures Bennett’s first ever headlining appearance in Las Vegas at the very commercial peak of his career and features a riveting live version of this week’s Top Tune.
This iconic singer and American legend has recorded over 20 Cy Coleman compositions over his illustrious career and we’re happy and grateful to announce that yesterday also marks, for the first time in digital form, the release his entire Columbia Records catalog. Salute Mr. Bennett!
