Song Lyric Sunday: May 10, 2020 – Couple/Together/Us.

Last Sunday was not a good day and I did not get round to posting a Song Lyric Sunday. This week I intend to do my best to post one. So here we are for Jim Adams Song Lyric Sunday. This week’s prompt prompt is : May 10, 2020 – Couple/Together/Us.

Well my first choice for this prompt is Regina Spektor and her song US.

Regina Ilyinichna Spektor born February 18, 1980)[1] is a Russian-born American singer, songwriter, and pianist. More information here.

Us” is the fifth track from American singer Regina Spektor‘s major label debut Soviet Kitsch. It was officially released as a single in 2006 for her UK compilation album Mary Ann Meets the Gravediggers and Other Short Stories by Regina Spektor. The song is notable for its use of a string quartet in addition to Spektor’s usual piano and vocals. The song was also used in a UEFA Champions League Final montage, by ITV. Also this song was used in the film (500) Days of Summer. As of 2009 the single has sold 86,000 copies in United States. Information from here.

Now let’s go way back to 1967. “Happy Together” is a song by American rock band the Turtles from their third studio album Happy Together (1967). The song was written by Garry Bonner and Alan Gordon, arranged by Chip Douglas, and produced by Joe Wissert. More information here.

*****

We’re a Couple of Swells” is an comedy duet song performed by Judy Garland and Fred Astaire in the film Easter Parade (1948). It was written by Irving Berlin. Berlin originally wrote the song Let’s Take an Old-Fashioned Walk for the scene but the film’s producer, Arthur Freed, convinced Berlin to change this for a song that would highlight Garland’s comedic talent. Berlin wrote the song in about an hour drawing on his experience as a Tin Pan Alley popular songwriter. More information here

Happy Sunday every one be safe.
