"Stranger In Paradise".

OK, more pop tunes based upon the classics: This beautiful romantic ballad was composed by Wright and Forrest for the musical "Kismet". It was inspired by Borodin's "Gliding Dance Of The Maidens" from his "Polovtsian Dances". Tony Bennett's 1953 version is perhaps its most popular rendition.

Yesterday's answer: "I'm Always Chasing Rainbows". One of many beautiful tunes from the WWI era. To my dear nephew David Garcia: "I'm sure you play it masterfully!"
