Swing Time (1936)

astairical:

Although the song “The Way You Look Tonight” is best known to modern audiences by the cover version by Frank Sinatra, it was originally introduced in the 1936 film Swing Time, starring Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. In the movie, Rogers’ character is angry at Astaire’s — and he comes to her apartment to make amends, but she tells him to get out, from the adjoining room, where she is washing her hair. Instead of giving up, Astaire sits down at the piano and sings this tune to her — when she’s feeling anything but beautiful. As expected, it melts Rogers’ heart and she comes out and places her hand on his shoulder, showing that she has forgiven him.

The song became a hit almost at once in 1936, quickly winning the Academy Award for Best Original Song. It was written by Jerome Kern, with lyrics by Dorothy Fields, who later remarked — “The first time Jerry played that melody for me, I went out and started to cry. The release absolutely killed me. I couldn’t stop, it was so beautiful.

Never gonna dance,

Never gonna dance,

Only gonna love you…

"Does she dance very beautifully?"
"Who?"
"The girl you’re in love with"
"Yes. Very."
