Astrid’s Simply Bassey #111

Today I’m playing the second of two requests for Lydia.

“The Man that Got Away” is a popular song, published in 1953 and was
written for the 1954 version of the movie “A Star Is Born.” and was
made famous by Judy Garland. The music was written by Harold Arlen,
and the lyrics by Ira Gershwin. In 1955 it was nominated for the
Academy Award for Best Original Song.

Shirley’s Bassey’s recording was with Geoff Love and his Orchestra and
was released in 1959 on the album “The Fabulous Shirley Bassey”

Thanks for your requests Lydia. I hope you enjoy Shirley’s rendition
of this wonderful song today.
