Blossoms will run away -
Cakes reign but a Day.
But Memory like Melody,
Is pink eternally

Faye Dunaway

Here is the song from "The Thomas Crown Affair" (1968) (which won an Academy Award for Best Song), performed by Grady Tate, chosen to enhance the beauty and chic of the wonderful actress Faye Dunaway, who starred in that film with Steve MacQueen.
Grady Tate is a famous drummer and jazz singer. As a drummer, he performed with Quincy Jones, Jimmy Smith, Lionel Hampton, Stan Getz, Pearl Bailey, Tony Bennett, Ella Fitzgerald, Aretha Franklin, Lena Horne, Peggy Lee, Della Reese, Sarah Vaughan, Michael Legrand, Lalo Schrifin and André Previn. As a singer, he was discovered by Peggy Lee and described as "the best singer/musician since Nat King Cole".
Faye Dunaway (born in 1941) is an Academy Award-winning American actress. Christened Dorothy Faye Dunaway, she studied at the theater department of Boston University and graduated from the University of Florida. She dropped the "Dorothy" when she began acting. Her first screen role was in 1967 in "Hurry Sundown", but that same year, she got the leading female role in "Bonnie and Clyde" (opposite Warren Beatty) which garnered her an Oscar nomination. It was in the 1970's that she began to stretch her acting muscles in such films as "Three Days of the Condor", "Little Big Man", "Chinatown", "Eyes of Laura Mars" and "Network", for which she won her Oscar. In 1981, she had the leading role in "Mommie Dearest" (1981) as Joan Crawford. She played an alcoholic in "Barfly" (opposite Mickey Rourke). In a later movie, "Don Juan DeMarco" (1995), Dunaway co-starred with Johnny Depp and the late Marlon Brando. She has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
