“That’s Life”: Something Fun for the New Year


“That’s Life” is a terrific song describing the ups and downs everyone experiences. It seems appropriate for this new year. It has been recorded by a panoply of singers over the years, some of those versions have been memorable. Written by Dean Kay and Kelly Gordon, the 1966 recording by Frank Sinatra is certainly the most famous. This last year, in the finale of “Smash,” the recently-canceled NBC series depicting the difficulties in producing a Broadway musical about Marilyn Monroe, it served as an object lesson for those who pursue success on Broadway and perhaps elsewhere as well. Here Megan Hilty and Katherine McPhee, the show’s rivals for the role of Marilyn, sing a stunning rendition of “That’s Life.” It is an exciting performance. Enjoy.
