When I Fall in Love

Song 36:365 is When I Fall in Love, written by Victor Young and Edward Heyman in 1952 in the film One Minute to Zero. The first hit version was recorded by Doris Day in 1952, but perhaps the most famous version is Nat King Cole’s 1956 recording. In 1996 Nat King Cole’s daughter recorded a “duet” with her late father, using his original recording. This won the 1996 Grammy for Best Pop Collaboration with Vocals.
