Song of the Day #207

Song of the Day: You Must Believe in Spring (Le Chanson de Maxence), music by Michel Legrand, French lyrics by Jacques Demy, English lyrics by Alan and Marilyn Bergman, is from the 1967 film "Les Demoiselles de Rochefort." Listen here for an audio clip of Legrand playing this sensitive song; here for a heartfelt audio clip of pianist Bill Evans, the title track of an album featuring Eddie Gomez on bass and Eliot Zigmund on drums; and here for a vocal version by Tony Bennett, featuring Evans on piano again. Also listen to an audio clip of a Jack Jones rendition. Cheers to the Vernal Equinox! Happy Spring, which arrives at 7:34 a.m., Eastern time!
