First Movie SONG That Comes to Mind


Recommended Posts

"If I Had My Way" -- sung by the trio at the opening of One Way Passage (1932) [I much prefer this version, culminating in that incredible tracking shot at the bar, to the later Bing Crosby rendition.]

Next: Sung in a mansion (but not a castle or palace)

Chorus
Casey would waltz with a strawberry blonde,
And the band played on.
He'd glide cross the floor with the girl he adored,
And the band played on.
But his brain was so loaded it nearly exploded,
The poor girl would shake with alarm.
He'd ne'er leave the girl with the strawberry curls,
And the band played on.

The Band Played On - The Strawberry Blonde
