No Turns New York. By Paul Goldfinger ©

“No Turns.”  By Paul Goldfinger ©  Mid-town Manhattan.

FRANK SINATRA recorded this song in 1979 for his Trilogy album. It first appeared in a Martin Scorsese film in 1977 called New York, New York and was written by  Kander and Ebb (Cabaret, Kiss of the Spider Woman)  and first performed by Liza Minnelli in the film.

Robert de Niro rejected the first song written by Kander and Ebb for the movie, and our song below was the result of the re-do.  It was first titled, “The Theme From New York, New York.”

I recall hearing this song performed in that film by Liza.  It was a nightclub setting, with the spotlight on her. It struck me that it was an amazing song, and I remember wondering why I hadn’t heard it before.  It’s the only thing from that movie that I recall, although that’s true of many of the movies I have seen.—Paul @Blogfinger.

“Start spreadin’ the news, I’m leaving today

“I want to be a part of it: New York, New York.”

MADDIE AND TAE   “Fly”:

“So keep on climbing, though the ground might shake
Just keep on reaching though the limb might break
We’ve come this far, don’t you be scared now
‘Cause you can learn to fly on the way down”
