Billie Holiday – “Good Morning Heartache”

“Good Morning Heartache” was written by Irene Higgenbotham, Dan Fisher and Ervin Drake for the vocalist Billie Holiday, who first recorded it on this day —January 22 — in 1946. In the years since its recorded debut, the song, whose lyrics deal with lingering grief of a love affair gone awry, became a signature tune for Lady Day and an enduring jazz standard.
