Song of the Day #280
Song of the Day: How About You?, music by Burton Lane, lyrics by Ralph Freed, is from the 1941 Busby Berkeley film musical "Babes on Broadway," starring Mickey Rooney and Judy Garland. This Oscar-nominated song has also been recorded in a live swinging version by jazz violinist Stephane Grappelli. Listen to a Sinatra audio clip here or three different audio clips from a 1956 Stan Getz album, "The Steamer" (audio clips at that link). Today kicks off a multi-day tribute to Broadway—music from, or inspired by, The Great White Way, in honor of the American Theater Wing's Antoinette Perry Awards. The Tony's! "I like New York in June, how about you?" It's one of my favorite months of the year!
