My Foolish Heart
I watched my foolish heart expand
In the lazy glow of benevolence,
O'er the various modes of man's belief.
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
This is one of my sister's (Eleanor Buckley Nowitzky - '59 - of NC) favorite songs, so I always like to use it for her birthday.
Happy Birthday, Lady!

|"My Foolish Heart" is a
song that was published in
The music was composed by Victor Young and the lyric was written by Ned Washington. The song was introduced by the singer Martha Mears in the 1949 film of the same name. The song failed to escape critics' general laceration of the film. Time wrote in its review that "nothing offsets the blight of such tear-splashed excesses as the bloop-bleep-bloop of a sentimental ballad on the sound track." Nevertheless, the song was nominated for an Oscar, losing out to "Baby, It's Cold Outside" by Frank Loesser.
The song was also a popular success, with two recordings of the song listed among the top 30 on the Billboard charts in 1950. Gordon Jenkins's recording of "My Foolish Heart", Sandy Evans, vocal, reached the top ten on the charts. However, Billy Eckstine's version became a million seller, spending 19 weeks on the charts and peaking at number six...
