Published by Chappell & Company, "Ev'ry Time We Say Goodbye" is a song with lyrics and music by Cole Porter. It was introduced in 1944 in Billy Rose's musical revue, Seven Lively Arts. Notable is Porter's clever use of word painting: As the lyrics "There is no love song finer / But how strange the change / From major to minor / Ev'ry time we say goodbye" are sung, the song literally changes its tonality from major to minor. The song has since become a jazz standard.

Note: Many artists have replaced the apostrophe in "ev'ry" with an "e" and have combined "time" to form the more common "everytime."

Film Noir is singer-songwriter Carly Simon's 22nd album, 19th studio album, and third album devoted to standards, released in 1997. Jimmy Webb co-produced the album and contributed his vocals, orchestration and piano skills to the project which was filmed for an AMC documentary (which premiered in September 1997). He also co-wrote the song "Film Noir" with Simon. John Travolta sings a duet with Simon on the song "Two Sleepy People".
