“The Man I Love” is a classic love song written by two brothers, George and Ira Gershwin in 1924. The original song was written as “The Girl I Love.” It was originally slated to be in the satire, Lady Be Good. When it was cut, the Gershwin brothers changed it to “The Man I Love .” This particular version is sung by Lena Horne, making it a classical love song with a touch of rhythm and blues. Horne is a well-known songstress, actress, and civil-rights activist. The lyrics tell the typical story of a lady dreaming of her Prince Charming, wondering when he’ll come to get her.
