  1. Tenderly

    "Tenderly" is a popular song published in 1946 with music by Walter Gross and lyrics by Jack Lawrence. Copyright 1946 by Edwin H. Morris & Company, Inc. Originally written in the key of Eb as a waltz in 3/4 time, it has since been performed in 4/4 and has subsequently become a popular jazz standard. Early recordings were by Sarah Vaughan, who recorded the song in 1946 and had a US pop hit with it in 1947; and the Brazilian crooner and pianist Dick Farney who recorded the song in 1947. Since then, "Tenderly" has been recorded by many artists, but perhaps the best-known version was by Rosemary Clooney. Clooney's recorded version reached only #17 on the Billboard magazine pop charts in early 1952, but it is more popular than the chart data would suggest, as is evidenced by the fact that Tenderly served as the theme song for Clooney's 1956-1957 TV variety show. The song featured in the 1953 film Torch Song. Randy Brooks, trumpeter and leader of the top rated Randy Brooks Band, may be best known for their rendition of Tenderly as a most requested song of 1947. A 1953/54 version of Eddie Cochran was released in 1997 on the album Rockin' It Country Style.

Examples of tenderly in a Sentence

  1. Francis de Sales:

    If the heart wanders or is distracted, bring it back to the point quite gently and replace it tenderly in its Master's presence.

  2. Bob Alberti:

    Hold tenderly that which you cherish, for it is precious and a tight grip may crush it. Do not let the fear of dropping it cause you to hold it too tightly the chances are, it's holding you too.

  3. Lesley Manville:

    … You’re seeing real pockets of tenderness with how [the characters] are dealing with getting older and approaching that time of their lives, i always see Cathy and Michael at the center of it all, having this 'will they, won’t they.' Will this romance happen? Is it alright to be falling in love at this time in your life with your dead husband’s best friend? It’s very tenderly and delicately written, and I think people want to see a romance that is about two middle-aged people, rather than a romance with strapping young 20-somethings.

  4. Ring Lardner:

    'Are you lost, daddy' I asked tenderly. 'Shut up,' he explained.

    The finest qualities of our nature, like the bloom on fruits, can be preserved only by the most delicate handling. Yet we do not treat ourselves nor one another thus tenderly.
