"Isn't This A Lovely Day" as written by and Irving Berlin....
The weather is frightening
The thunder and lightning
Seem to be having their way
But as far as I'm concerned, it's a lovely day
The turn in the weather
Will keep us together
So I can honestly say
That as far as I'm concerned, it's a lovely day
And everything's O.K.

Isn't this a lovely day
To be caught in the rain?
You were going on your way
Now you've got to remain

Just as you were going, leaving me all at sea
The clouds broke, they broke and oh
What a break for me

I can see the sun up high
Though we're caught in the storm
I can see where you and I
Could be cozy and warm

Let the rain pitter patter
But it really doesn't matter
If the skies are gray
Long as I can be with you it's a lovely day

    General CommentThis song was composed by Irving Berlin for the movie TOP HAT starring Ginger Rogers & Fred Astaire in 1935. In the course of the movie, Fred's character meets Ginger's character, and it is love at first sight for him, but not for her. She's determined to avoid him as he is to win her heart. In one scene, both of them are trapped on a bandstand in London's Hyde Park during a rainstorm.. and this is where the song comes into play.

    Stacey Kent did a good job at interpreting this song. I like Ella Fitzgerald's interpretation too (which can be heard from one of her songbooks).
