Song of the Day #154

Song of the Day: Here's that Rainy Day, music by Jimmy Van Heusen, lyrics by Johnny Burke, is a standard that has been performed by singers such as Perry Como, Frank Sinatra, and Ella Fitzgerald and instrumentalists such as Paul Desmond and Stan Getz. The song actually originates from a 6-performance 1953 Broadway flop, "Carnival in Flanders," which starred John Raitt (father of Bonnie Raitt). Listen to a Nancy Wilson audio clip here.
