Song of the Day: Ed Ames, “My Cup Runneth Over”

We get to choose today’s "Love Is In Da Blog" song, and I choose the quintessential love song of all time, "My Cup Runneth Over." Written by Harvey Schmidt with lyrics by Tom Jones (not Tom Jones of "It’s Not Unusual" fame) for the 1966 Broadway musical I Do! I Do!, the most popular version was done by singer and actor Ed Ames, who took it to #8 on the Hot 100 and #1 on the Adult Contemporary chart.

  1. Gosh, this was just beautiful. He sang it as one should. I find that, many singers, start screeching or adding extra notes while they contort their face instead of just singing it as one should. I looked him up because I though he was Native American but he is Jewish from the Ukraine. I would love to ask him what he thinks about what is going on right now over there. He would be more affected by it than me or you since he may have relatives there and it’s his ancestry.

    1. His parents were from the Ukraine; he was born in Massachusetts. Still, probably has an opinion. He’s still around, bless his heart. You of course remember the tomahawk incident. …
