Song of the Day #35

Song of the Day: I Will Wait for You, music by Michel Legrand, English lyrics by Norman Gimbel, French lyrics by Jacques Demy, was an Oscar-nominated song that lost out to the brilliant theme from "The Sandpiper." But it derived from the 1964 masterpiece, "The
Umbrellas of Cherbourg
" (Les Parapluies de Cherbourg). A special 2-CD version of the soundtrack includes two superb jazz instrumental versions arranged by Legrand.
