As Time Goes By (song)

"As Time Goes By" is a song written by Herman Hupfeld for the 1931 Broadway musical, Everybody's Welcome. In the original show it was sung by Frances Williams. It was recorded that year by several artists, including Rudy Vallee.

The song was re-introduced in 1942 in the film Casablanca, sung by Dooley Wilson. Wilson never released a single of the song because of a musicians' strike at the time of the film's release — but a re-issue of Rudy Vallee's 1931 recording became a major seller in 1942.

Cover versions

The song has been performed by several artists, including Billie Holiday, Perry Como, Frank Sinatra, Harry Nilsson, Barbra Streisand, Carly Simon, Tony Bennett, Jane Monheit and Willie Nelson.
