(1926), where it was introduced by Gertrude Lawrence. Gershwin originally approached the song as an uptempo jazz tune, but his brother Ira suggested that it might work much better as a ballad, and George ultimately agreed. It has been performed by numerous artists since its debut and is a jazz standard as well as a key work in the Great American Songbook. In chronological order: It was performed by Julie Andrews in the 1968 movie Star! about the life of the actress Gertrude Lawrence. The movie was directed by Robert Wise. The 1987 movie Someone To Watch Over Me, directed by Ridley Scott, takes its title from this song. The soundtrack features three versions of qSomeone to Watch Over Me, q two of which were new renditions by Sting and Roberta Flack. The third version used was the 1961 recording by Gene Ammons. A soundtrack album was never issued and so the Roberta Flack performance (produced by Michael Kamen) remains unreleased. Sting included his version as a b-side for the qEnglishman in New Yorkq single, and on the compilation At The Movies, released in 1999. Another 1987 film, Beyond Therapy, used the tune, sung by Yves Montand, in its opening sequence. This song was made famous to another generation in the 1996 American movie Mr. Holland's Opus. Jean Louisa Kelly played the part of Rowena, who sang qSomeone to Watch Over Meq in this movie; however, a different version of the song sung by Julia Fordham was included on the movie soundtrack. Asher Book also sings it in the 2009 remake of Fame. qSomeone to Watch Over Meq was featured extensively in an episode of the television series Battlestar Galactica. The episode, also titled qSomeone to Watch Over Me, q featured a piano player who played the song in qJoe's Bar.q In Star Trek: Voyager, qSomeone to Watch Over Meq was the title of an episode, with the song featuring at the climax and end of the episPlease note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online.
