The Best Is Yet to Come!

In our series of composers performing their work...

Check out the great Cy Coleman singing The Best is Yet to Come, first recorded by Tony Bennett only to be eclipsed by Sinatra's rendition with Count Basie in an arrangement by Quincy Jones.

"You think you've flown before
but baby you aint left the ground."

The lyrics were written by Carolyn Leigh who also wrote the fabulous Young at Heart which has one of the coolest opening lines of any song ever... "Fairy tales can come true, it can happen to you, if you are young at heart."

Here's Frank singing The Best is Yet to Come later in his career -- while his voice and quite possibly his memory have shifted his sexy swagger is still in full effect.

"You think you've seen the sun but you aint see it shine."
