Song of the Day: Desi Arnaz, “I Love Lucy”

Actress, comedienne, model, and studio executive Lucille Ball was born on August 6, 1911. I Love Lucy, on which she and then-husband Desi Arnaz starred, has been in constant reruns since it first ran in the ’50’s. They say that, at any given time, I Love Lucy is running somewhere in the world. Desi Arnaz released his vocal version of the show’s theme in 1953. It was written by Eliot Daniel with lyrics by Harold Adamson.
