The Man I Love Lyrics
What it's about: Kate dreams about meeting her true love in this classic George & Ira Gershwin song (her 4th cover tune to be released as a single).
Running time: 3:17
Rhapsody in Blue running time: 4:08
The Man I Love entered the UK chart in the second week of its release and immediately peaked at #27, on July 30, 1994.  It held that position for one week, and spent a total of two weeks on the chart.
Kate recorded The Man I Love with world-renowned harmonica player Larry Adler for the 1994 Glory Of Gershwin CD, a collection of 16 Gershwin songs released in honor of Mr. Adler's 80th birthday.
Kate only appears on the A-side. The B-side is an edited version of Rhapsody In Blue featuring Larry Adler and George Martin.
Technically, this is Kate's 28th VINYL UK single. Moments Of Pleasure and Shoedance weren't issued (commercially) on 7" vinyl (just CD), but they're still singles (obviously), so The Man I Love is her 30th UK single.
