It Might Be You


Through the Window

Performed by Désirée Goyette
Music by Dave Grusin
Lyrics by Marilyn and Alan Bergman

Listen to the Music!

This week, we’re going to the movies with Désirée Goyette’s cover of It Might Be You, which was originally composed by Dave Grusin with lyrics by Marilyn and Alan Bergman and performed by Stephen Bishop as the theme song for the 1982 Dustin Hoffman film Tootsie. Désirée’s version remains close to the original while still showcasing her excellent musicianship, employing lushly layered contemporary pop instrumentation with just a tinge of jazz. It is from her album Through the Window, a contemporary jazz/pop collection featuring songs penned through the years by Désirée Goyette & Ed Bogas along with two covers. Through the Window is a musical scrapbook chronicling dreams of dancing beyond comfort zones, choosing freedom over attachment, the various faces and phases of human love and personal ego, and the recognition that who we truly are is more than enough.
