Obviously nobody cares...It's "When You Wish Upon a Star" from the 1940 Disney classic "Pinocchio" performed by Cliff Edwards.

Marcar-- That was a great question. The last time I saw that film I was two or three years -old in the arms of my grandmother watching  Disneyland on television. 

And you can rest assured that I remember the song very well, but since I couldn't read I probably just remembered a few key words in the song.  It looks like you stumped us here. LOL

Do you know this one?

My mother used to say to me
When you grow up, my son
I hope you're a bum like your father was
'Cause a good man ain't no fun!

Stonecutters Cut It On Wood from "Carousel", music by Richard Rodgers, lyric by Oscar Hammerstein II.

Is that right? I better check before I add a new one...

Well, I'll go ahead:

Next: "Each night I wish on a star

          That you stay

           As you are"

The title was "Stonecutters Cut It On Stone".  The next line is "Woodpeckers Peck It On Wood".

Sorry, I guess I didn't get it right...do I keep the thread going with my last lyric or do you want another turn?

Sung by Corinna Mura who also famously sang "The Song of the Rose" and "La Marseillaise" in "Casablanca" two years before singing this song in a classic movie.

Here's another non-lyrical hint. The movie that this song is featured in cashed in on the success of "Casablanca" and has the same director and much of the same cast including Humphrey Bogart, Claude Rains, Peter Lorre, Sidney Greenstreet, etc. And the song is a love song repeated three times, I think, in the film, once by Mura, once at the piano by Bogart's love interest, and once heard by the lovers' from a balcony as an unknown male voice sings it in the street.

Someday I'll Meet You Again--Passage to Marseille (without all the hints, I would've never guessed this one)

Yes, Shutoo you are right. I watched this movie for the first time the other night as part of the SOTM Charles Boyer airing and it was quite good. Altho you can see them straining to repeat the success of "Casablanca" and that can never happen: the old "can't catch lightning in a bottle" saying. Anyway, this song repeated throughout the movie and it seemed they were trying to recapture the "As Time Goes By" success, but this song isn't quite as good, altho it is a pretty song. It stuck in my head...

Your thread.

"It's A Grand Night For Singing" from the 1945 version of "State Fair".

 

Does it seems that people dressed differently for fairs in 1945, as opposed to today?

I think it's fair to say we dress far more casually for everything now :D

Here's one that shouldn't be too difficult.

Never tap your toe in June to an organ grinder’s tune. 

Men who pick up rusty pins marry girls with double chins. 

Three on one match isn’t good, make a circle, knock on wood. 

On the sidewalk, don’t relax, never, never step on cracks.

Thanks Miles, and thanks for the clip it's great. I wasn't familiar with the movie, but you piqued my curiosity.

Next: "You lie awake and think about the girl (in the movie it's "the boy" instead)

And never, ever think of counting sheep."

That is one of Frank Sinatra's favorite songs - - In the Wee Small Hours of the Morning.

Just remembered--I have the cassette --they used it in Sleepless in Seattle.

Yes, that's the song. It was sung by Carly Simon in "Sleepless in Seattle" (1993), written by David Mann and Bob Hilliard. Love this song...she did a decent version, but Sinatra's the best.

Your thread, Princess.
