The song of the day for Monday, March 9, 2015 is “A Shine On Your Shoes.”
About This Song
“A Shine On Your Shoes” was written in 1932 by Arthur Schwartz and Howard Dietz for the 1932 Broadway musical Flying Colors. The same song was used for the 1953 movie The Band Wagon, which starred Fred Astaire and Cyd Charisse.
About This Version
This charming song is from Bennett’s album Steppin’ Out, which is chock-full of songs that featured Fred Astaire singing and dancing, in this case, from the The Band Wagon. It features the delightful Ralph Sharon Trio, with Doug Richeson on bass and Clayton Cameron on drums.
I dare you to not tap your toes while you listen.
“A Shine On Your Shoes,” as well as Steppin’ Out, is available from iTunes.
