Livingston and Evans ╔tats-Unis Livingston and Evans were the songwriting and composing team of Jay Livingston (1915-2001) and Ray Evans (1915-2007), who worked on movies, television and stage.
They met while attending the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. They played together in bands. In either 1937 or 1938, the pair moved to New York City to begin their songwriting careers. They wrote the 1940 hit song 'Goodbye Now' for the 1938 Broadway musical revue Hellzapoppin, but years went by without further success.
In 1944, they moved to Hollywood at the instigation of Johnny Mercer to work in films. The following year, they were signed by Paramount Pictures. In 1946, five versions of their 'To Each His Own' (performed by Eddy Howard, Tony Martin, Freddy Martin & His Orchestra, The Modernaires and The Ink Spots) were in the Top Ten on the Billboard charts simultaneously, with three eventually peaking at number one.
