When Joanna Loved Me Lyrics

Artist: Tony Bennett

When Joanna Loved Me
Tony Bennett
Written by Robert Wells and Jack Segal

Peaked at # 94 in 1964 at the start of the British invasion

Today is just another day, tomorrow is a guess
But yesterday, oh, what I'd give for yesterday
To relive one yesterday and its happiness

When Joanna loved me
Every town was Paris
Every day was Sunday
Every month was May

When Joanna loved me
Every sound was music
Music made of laughter
Laughter that was bright and gay

But when Joanna left me
May became December
But, even in December, I remember
Her touch, her smile, and for a little while

She loves me
And once again it's Paris
Paris on a Sunday
And the month is May

Just beautiful; one of my favorite TB songs

Wells and Segal are poets. Bennett's treatment of their work is poetical. What remarkable art 'When Joanna Loved Me' is. When it is played on the Smooth Jazz & Standards FM station I listen to at work, I just have to stop what I'm doing and listen, and remember back to '64 when I was one year out of high school and falling in love.

Beautiful song.Wonderfully sung by a master crooner.A classic,if ever there was one. Love it!

This song is so short, sweet & simple & Bennett sing it so romantically. I had the album in 64 or 63, but never hear it played on the radio.

No one sings like Tony. This song melts my heart.

A beautifully constructed lyric a melody that effortlessly carries that lyric. Altogether a wonderful song.

Great song, rendered well by Tony circa 64, But his later "unplugged" version lost the thread of subtlety. He's entitled ;)
