Week #6: Someone to Watch Over Me was composed by George Gershwin with lyrics by Ira Gershwin. George Gershwin's genius remains as a composer whose work straddles genres, drawing from and synthesizing jazz, classical, and folk music. He frequently collaborated with his elder brother, the lyricist Ira Gershwin. This collaboration produced scores of hit broadway musicals and songs, including the musicals Porgy and Bess and Girl Crazy, and hit songs such as I Got Rhythm, The Man I Love, and Embraceable You.

Someone to Watch Over Me originally appeared on the musical Oh Kay! Since its debut in 1926, the song has had a long life. It has been recorded by countless artists and appeared in a huge variety of movies and television shows.

My version of the song is very minimal, consisting of a classical guitar, upright bass, and voice. There is no solo section and the melody is sung almost without embellishment. Recording this one made me nervous, since there is no hiding any of my vocal glitches or errors, but I think the recording does capture the mood of the song fairly well. I hope you enjoy it.
