The Way He Makes Me Feel/ No Matter What Happens (Yentl)
Yentl is a 1983 American film from United Artists, and directed, co-written, co-produced and starring Barbra Streisand based on a play by Leah Napolin and Isaac Bashevis Singer, itself based on Singer's short story "Yentl the Yeshiva Boy". The dramatic story incorporates humor and music to relate the odyssey of a Jewish girl in Poland who decides to dress and live like a man so she can receive an education in Jewish Talmudic Law after her father dies. The film's musical score and songs, composed by Michel Legrand, is memorable for the songs "Papa, Can You Hear Me?" and "The Way He Makes Me Feel", both sung by Streisand.
"The Way He Makes Me Feel" is the title of a popular song from 1983 performed by Barbra Streisand. The song is featured in the film adaptation of the play Yentl, in which Streisand starred and sang most of the music. The lyrics were by Alan and Marilyn Bergman, with music by Michel Legrand.
Along with another song from Yentl ("Papa, Can You Hear Me?"), "The Way He Makes Me Feel" was nominated for an Academy Award in the category Best Original Song; however, both tunes lost the Oscar to "Flashdance...What a Feeling" by Irene Cara.
"The Way He Makes Me Feel" was released as a single in a slightly different and more contemporary version than the one on the soundtrack to the film. It reached #40 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and spent two weeks at #1 on the adult contemporary chart. This was Streisand's eighth (and, to date, final) #1 song on the Billboard adult contemporary chart.
Released on LP in November of 1983 and CD on October 25, 1990. Produced by Barbra Streisand and Alan & Marilyn Bergman. Arranged and conducted by Michel Legrand. Music by Michel Legrand. Lyrics by Alan & Marilyn Bergman.-Wikipedia
