Tom Adair is the lyric writer who teamed with Matt Dennis to pen several of the best-known songs associated with Frank Sinatra, including "Everything Happens to Me," "Let's Get Away From It All," "Will You Still Be Mine?," "The Night We Called It a Day," "There's No You," and "Violets for Your Furs." While working for the power company and writing poems for the Saturday Evening Post, Adair met Dennis and showed him some of the lyrics he'd writtenRead more for "Will You Still Be Mine?" Dennis' connections with Tommy Dorsey resulted in the song being recorded quite soon and it resulted in a hit. Many of the team's best songs followed on its heels, including "Let's Get Away From It All," "Everything Happens to Me," and "The Night We Called It a Day," all recorded either by Dorsey with Frank Sinatra on vocals or by Sinatra solo. ~ John Bush Read less
