On the May 28th episode of CBS’ “,” cast members, family and friends celebrated  life of  (Katherine Chancellor), who passed away earlier this month at the age of 84, in an unprecedented tribute co-opting the regularly scheduled episode.  Cooper, the Emmy Award-winning actress who portrayed Katherine Chancellor for more than 39 years, was the show’s longest-running cast member.

Several songs played in the episode are available by emailing: and asking for a copy of the song you heard in a particular scene.

In the clip where Nikki tells Katherine that those who pass away are never gone and remain forever in our hearts, the accompanying instrumental music is "Always In My Heart", written by William Peterkin and Barbara L. Jordan.  It has played many times throughout the years on the show.

Wasn't this a wonderful episode with moving music?

"When I'm With You" on Y&R 7/12/11

Lots of people have been asking about the song on Y&R's 7-12-11 show called "When I'm With You" in the montage scene with Billy & Victoria after a scene in court (you can see the scene about 7 1/2 minutes into this YouTube clip)

It is a nearly perfect song for the scene, and it has a Michael Kisur-like vibe to it (the singer-songwriter, who with collaborator Brad Hatfield won an Emmy for Y&R a few years ago, "Best Song For a Daytime Drama - SUNSHINE").

The song is "When I'm With You" (by Dan Gautreau and Tom Howe) and can be downloaded here:

Happy Soapsinging!
