New York, New York (song)"New York, New York" is a song with lyrics by Fred Ebb and music by John Kander. It first appeared in the 1977 Martin Scorsese-directed movie New York, New York, performed by Liza Minnelli, but did not become a popular hit until it was recorded by Frank Sinatra. The first line of the song is "Start spreadin' the news, I'm leaving today."
It is played over the Yankee Stadium loudspeakers at the end of New York Yankees ballgames. The Sinatra version is played after a Yankees win, and the Minnelli version is played after a loss. The song is also played during the post parade of the Belmont Stakes.
"New York, New York" is also a song from the 1946 musical On the Town with music by Leonard Bernstein and lyrics by Betty Comden and Adolph Green. The first line of this one is "New York, New York, it's a hell of a town: the Bronx is up and the Battery's down."
