Song of the Day: Eddie Heywood, “Canadian Sunset”

Happy heavenly birthday to jazz pianist Eddie Heywood, born 105 years ago in Atlanta. Eddie is best known as the composer of "Canadian Sunset," which he performed with Hugo Winterhalter & His Orchestra in 1956. The song peaked at #2 on the Hot 100 and #9 on the R&B chart. Andy Williams, whose birthday was yesterday, recorded a vocal version the same year and reached #7.
