Song of the Week: But Not For Me

"But Not For Me" was composed by George and Ira Gershwin in 1930 for the Broadway musical Girl Crazy. This version was recorded in 1959 by Ella Fitzgerald with the Nelson Riddle Orchestra. Ira Gershwin, still alive at the time of this recording, remarked after hearing Ella sing, "I didn't realize how great some of the music George and I wrote was until I heard her sing it".
