Younger than Springtime

With the approach of spring, the song Younger Than Springtime came to mind.

Rodgers and Hammerstein
Rodgers and Hammerstein

This song is a Rodgers and Hammerstein song that was written for their musical, South Pacific.

The song is performed in the first act by Lieutenant Cable when he makes love to his adored Liat, to whom he was only recently introduced by her mother Bloody Mary. The song shows that love just happens and does not follow the rules of racial separation prevalent in the United States at that time.

Performers such as Frank Sinatra and Andy Williams have recorded the song over the years.
