It’s a month full of birthdays...7 including a new one, my hubby’s niece gave birth to a baby girl on May 7th, named Molly Olivia. My hubby’s birthday is on May 25th and he will be ....65!! He is officially a senior citizen but only in age, not in his heart. I decided to choose 1957, hubby’s birth year to choose 3 songs from the movies- one that won the Oscar, one that was nominated and one that missed out on both. Let’s see if you can guess which is which.
1. ALL THE WAY SUNG BY FRANK SINATRA
This song is from the film, “ The Joker Is Wild” starring Frank Sinatra which turned into one of his bigger hits. This song was written by Jimmy Van Heusen with lyrics by Sammy Cahn.
2. AN AFFAIR TO REMEMBER SUNG BY VIC DAMONE
I know the movie very well and even the music but I didn’t know, or remember, the lyrics. I guess it’s because the song was heard at the very beginning and then sung by Marni Nixon who always subbed for Deborah Kerr. ( among others). This song was composed by Harry Warren with lyrics by Leo McCarey and Harold Adamson.
3. LOVING YOU SUNG BY ELVIS
Elvis is Elvis we don’t even have to say his last name and we know who it is. He starred in the film with the same name. This is a really nice song written by Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller.
So which song won the Oscar, which was nominated and which song lostnon both counts?
