"You Don't Know" by Ellie Greenwich
In honor of the holiday--the most important day of the year--this SOTD goes out to one of the most creative, interesting Jews in the history of songwriting, which is saying a lot because there are thousands of Jews, from Gershwin to Dylan and beyond, who could write a mean song. But Ellie Greenwich is forever one of our best, having penned some of the finest ever pop songs. "You Don't Know" isn't necessarily her best song or anything, but it's very very good and very cinematic. Plus, she sings it, which makes the achievement all the more impressive.
