Written by one of the greatest American song-writers of all time for the 1935 Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers musical Top Hat. Berlin penned more than 1500 songs, and composed the scores for 18 Broadway musicals. Our version arranged by Alexander has the inscription “with apologies to Gabriel Fauré” on the score. We think he’d be quite happy.

Dieser Song wurde von einem der größten amerikanischen Songwriter aller Zeiten für das Musical Top Hat mit Fred Astaire und Ginger Rogers geschrieben. Berlin verfasste über 1500 Songs und komponierte die Musik für 18 Broadwaymusicals. Unsere Version, die von Alexander L’Estrange arrangiert wurde, trägt die Widmung „Wir bitten Gabriel Fauré um Verzeihung”. Wir glauben, dass er sich darüber gefreut hätte!
