Grammy Song Of the Year 1966

"The Shadow of Your Smile", also known as "Love Theme from The Sandpiper", is a popular song. The music was written by Johnny Mandel with the lyrics written by Paul Francis Webster. The song was introduced in the 1965 film The Sandpiper with a trumpet solo by Jack Sheldon and later became a minor hit for Tony Bennett (Johnny Mandel arranged and conducted his version as well). It won the Grammy Award for Song of the Year and the Academy Award for Best Original Song. Tony Bennett re-recorded this song for his album Duets: An American Classic with Colombian-rock singer Juanes in a "Spanglish" version. This marked the first time that Juanes sang in English and Tony Bennett in Spanish.Carly Smithson performed "The Shadow of Your Smile" on Season 7 of American Idol during the top 24 performances. It was released for download from the iTunes store on February 21, 2008.
