Song of the Day #744
Song of the Day: It's Only a Paper Moon, music by Harold Arlen, lyrics by E.Y. (Yip) Harburg and Billy Rose, is a song that owes its origins to the theater. It has also been heard in a few films, including "Take a Chance" (1933), "Paper Moon" (1973), and "Funny Lady" (1975). While you're celebrating the arrival of the Full Harvest Moon later this week, listen to audio clips of this song recorded by Ella Fitzgerald, Nat King Cole, and actor James Caan (from "Funny Lady").
