An amazing artist and character, Barbra Streisand was born in April 1942 in New York, and she is a singer, a dedicated actress, and a filmmaker.
She has had a wonderful career path, achieving success everywhere, a career that started in the early 1960s.
Throughout her career, she has topped the US Billboard with 11 albums, and she had five number-one singles on the US Billboard Hot 100, among which is the song we are talking about today – The Way We Are.
The Way We Were is a beautiful song, produced by Marty Paich and written by Alan Bergman, Marilyn Bergman, and Marvin Hamlisch.
The song was released in September 1973 as part of her fifteenth studio album with the same name - The Way We Were.
It has a length of 3:29 minutes and was released under the Columbia label.
The Way We Were won two Academy Awards, had an incredible commercial success, and topped the charts in Canada, the United States, and many other countries.
When looking at the story behind the free The Way We Were piano sheet music, we learn that they speak about the melancholic relationship between the two main characters from the 1973 movie with the same name - The Way We Were.
It is a sad love story behind the main characters from the movie played by Katie Morosky and Robert Redford.
As it was a song loved by so many, it was covered by some famous artists, including Andy Williams in 1974, Gladys Knight & the Pips – 1974, Bing Crosby in 1976, or Lionel Richie in 2012.
Behind the lyrics, the instrumental composition of the free The Way We Were piano sheets is very calm and easy, with elements like bass, vocals, and drums.
Maybe its simplicity makes it so beautiful.
