Dick Powell & Ruby Keeler
"I Only Have Eyes for You"

Dick Powell & Ruby Keeler
movie musical
(Warner Bros., 1934)

I hate musicals, for the most part. There are a handful of exceptions, though, and old movie musicals with Dick Powell and/or Ruby Keeler, with production numbers by Busby Berkeley, fit the bill to a T.

I pulled today's song, btw, from a great collection called Lullaby Of Broadway: The Best of Busby Berkeley at Warner Bros. The only drawback to it is it does not include "Pettin' in the Park" from Gold Diggers of 1933. That oughta be against the law!

Does it have Shuffle Off to Buffalo? That one is an earworm, too.

It's disc 1, track 2, my dear. If you click the link (i.e., the title of the CD collection), you can see the entire tracklisting for it on Amazon.

This reminds me of watching old black and white movies with my uncle on hot summer days. Wishing the fan actually did something to cool the room... Eating fudgesicles, and probably about a million popsicles, orange or root beer thank you very much!

Thank you for bringing that wonderful memory to mind!
