Paul Popa popped in tonight, so we decided to record a song. This is one I had hoped to record with Karen Mitchell, but time ran out on her last visit after doing the two songs that we did, for which I am very grateful because it's always an honor to play with her. But, this is indeed a very beautiful song written by the great French composer Michel LeGrand. It was written for the 1982 movie Best Friends which starred Patti Austin and James Ingram,  and they sang it magnificently together. The lyrics were written by Alan and Marilyn Bergman, and get this: at the 1983 Academy Awards, 4 songs were nominated for Best Song, and 3 of them had lyrics written by Alan and Marilyn Bergman. And, it was one of their songs that won, It Might Be You by Dave Grusin from the movie Tootsie. And, that is an absolutely gorgeous song, so I can't blame the Academy for making it the winner. But this nominated song by Michel LeGrand is also very nice, and it has endured very well. It's called: How Do You Keep The Music Playing
