The song of the day for Saturday, May 23, 2015 is “Shall We Dance.”
About This Song
Today’s song is, of course, the title song for the 1937 Astaire and Rogers film Shall We Dance and was written by George and Ira Gershwin. George Gershwin wrote a series of songs for this film that demonstrated the different styles of dance and choreography, including ballet, waltzes and more. Other great songs from this score include “They Can’t Take Away From Me” and “Let’s Call The Whole Thing Off.”
About This Version
I love this song … Mr. Bennett sings it at a similar tempo and with the same energy as the song has in the film. This version dances on air, just as Mr. Astaire does.
“Shall We Dance,” as well as Steppin’ Out, is available from iTunes.
And, of course, we have Mr. Astaire and Miss Rogers dancing away …
