"Chicago Style", the opening duet from ROAD TO BALI with Bing & Bob

more Bing!

Didn't think it would be hard to come up with a song sung by Bing Crosby, but you can choose one from one of his films even if he didn't sing it :)

I hate Bing Crosby, but since you gave us that leeway, I'll choose a song from his best film, which would have been better had he not been in it:

"It's Just a New Spanish Custom" sung and danced by Ethel Merman and Leon Errol in We're Not Dressing.

Next:  Haute couture
