The Way You Look Tonight (Billie Holiday)


Con letra de Dorothy Fields y música de Jerome Kern, The way you look tonight es una deliciosa canción. Me acuerdo de ella cantada en la película Los amigos de Peter. Pero hoy es una Billie Holiday de 21 años la que nos regala el oído. El tema fue grabado el 21 de octubre de 1936.


THE WAY YOU LOOK TONIGHT

Some day, when i'm awfully low,
when the world is cold,
i will feel a glow just thinking of you...
and the way you look tonight.
Yes you're lovely, with your smile so warm
and your cheeks so soft,
there is nothing for me but to love you,
and the way you look tonight.
With each word your tenderness grows,
tearing my fear apart...
and that laugh that wrinkles your nose,
it touches my foolish heart.
Lovely ... never, ever change.
keep that breathless charm.
won't you please arrange it ?
'cause i love you ... just the way you look tonight.
Mm, mm, mm, mm,
just the way you look tonight.

Billie Holliday - The Way You Look Tonight
