Today's song from the iTunes Library in

Cheek to Cheek

Lyrics ,Music:Irving Berlin

The song was publishe 1935.

The American public went crazy for the duo
of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers in the mid-1930s.
Their RKO musicals were the perfect escapist fare,
showing how the “other half lived”
during the tough days of the Depression.
Astaire (dressed to the nines, suave and debonair)
and Rogers (coquettish and elegantly clad in evening attire) along
with superb music and choreography made these films sure-fire hits.

Top Hat was Berlin’s second musical for Astaire/Rogers.
“Cheek to Cheek” is one of the best songs he wrote for their films.
In typical Berlin fashion, part of the tune had already been written
with a working title of “Moon Over Napoli”
and intended for an un-produced Broadway show titled More Cheers.
Berlin effortlessly reworked the number into “Cheek to Cheek.”
In Edward Jablonski’s biography, Irving Berlin: American Troubadour,
Berlin related the effect Astaire had on him:
“He’s a real inspiration for a writer.
I’d never have written Top Hat without him.”


Top Hat


Heaven, I'm in heaven
And my heart beats so that I can hardly speak
And I seem to find the happiness I seek
When were out together dancing cheek to cheek

Heaven, I'm in heaven
And the cares that hung around me through the week
Seem to vanish like a gamblers lucky streak
When were out together dancing (swinging) cheek to cheek

Oh I love to climb a mountain
And reach the highest peak
But it doesnt thrill (boot) me half as much
As dancing cheek to cheek

Oh I love to go out fishing
In a river or a creek
But I dont enjoy it half as much
As dancing cheek to cheek

(Come on and) dance with me
I want my arm(s) about you
That (those) charm(s) about you
Will carry me through...

(Right up) to heaven, I'm in heaven
And my heart beats so that I can hardly speak
And I seem to find the happiness I seek
When were out together dancing, out together dancing (swinging)
Out together dancing cheek to cheek
