Starliteyes, I had a feeling that you just might get this one.  Someday, I'll fool you with a Shirley Temple question, but not today.  Nice work, Star.  You're up next.

Before she begins singing the song, the singer makes a very memorable entrance in which she wears an unusual costume.

However, before she sings the song, she steps out of the costume and proceeds to sing wearing another costume.

See if you know this one:

The first time that I stole a kiss,

I caught her stealing two.

I asked her did she love me,

She said "Indeed I do".

It is the title song of a 1940's movie that starred Gene Autry.  The song was also a big hit for Bing Crosby.

Here is my final hint:

The song is about a girl from Iowa.

"Your hair is red, 

Your eyes are blue,

I'd swap my horse and dog for you"

Pretty close.  It's "Sioux City Sue".  Here is Gene Autry:

 

It was the title song of a 1946 movie that Gene starred in.  It became a big hit song for Gene and Bing Crosby,

Don't you dare to slay

Two skeeters while they play

They may want to make hey-hey

Song is from a musical that takes place in the future, which, at that time, was 1980.

 I recently had a birthday so this probably takes me back into more nostalgia. One of the first Judy Garland albums I ever got was called "Judy ": it was her favorite songs.  One song that you never hear much of is called  "Just Imagine " by Brown Henderson and DeSilva.

It's a beautiful song, and you're referring to the movie " Just Imagine " here in this question.

 But the song You Picked here is some obscure thing called "Never SWAT A Fly."

So that's my Sherlock Holmes work for today, if Wiki got it right. LOL

But "Just imagine" is such a beautiful song.

Great detective work, Princess!  Never Swat a Fly is indeed a rather obscure song from a bizarre musical from 1930.  Obscure or not, though, I thought it was one of the better moments from this musical.  If you'd like to see it, here's Marjorie White and Frank Albertson to perform it for you:

P.S. I got my first Judy album when I was 9 and it was Judy in Love.

Your thread, Princess.

Star:

"When the snow has turned from white to Blue, then maybe I'll come back to you".

That was the last song on Judy's album.

And I'll be back soon with another question too.
