Song of the Day Nov 24

November 24, 2023



Today our song is: Our Day Will Come by Ruby & The Romantics


Wikipedia tells us this about the song:


The song's composers were hoping to place "Our Day Will Come" with an established easy listening act and only agreed to let the new R&B group Ruby & the Romantics record the song after Kapp Records' A&R director Al Stanton promised that, if the Ruby & the Romantics' single failed, Kapp would record the song with Jack Jones. Stanton cut two versions of "Our Day Will Come" with Ruby & the Romantics, one with a mid-tempo arrangement and the other in a bossa nova style; the latter version, featuring a Hammond organ solo, was selected for release as a single in December 1962 and reached #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 the week of March 23, 1963. "Our Day Will Come" also charted at #11 in Australia and at #38 the United Kingdom.







Enjoy!
