    Hi

    I'm trying to find "The Things We Did Last Summer", written in 1945 by Sammy Cahn and Jule Styne and made popular by the likes of Jo Stafford and Dean Martin. I've looked in all the obvious places, but can't see a way to do a global search.

    Can anyone help?

    Thanks

    Paul

    Hi Paul,

    "The Things We Did Last Summer" is an old favorite of mine. I remember when it was popular in the early 1950s. It is yet another of the unduly neglected songs of its time. I play for audiences that enjoy and remember this repertoire, and it is on my playlist for a gig on Friday. Perhaps your post will remind others about it.

    You might want to check out a 1958 release by Frank Sinatra on Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AMwSypEc20A in which he sings some alternate lyrics on the last A section. There is a wonderful swinging performance by Bill Charlap and the New York Trio as well: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LI78...I78z8whQw4&t=3 for the first 6:48 or so.
