 And this is one of my favorite Judy Garland songs that she never sang at Carnegie Hall, The Palace or The Palladium--

" Better Luck Next Time " by Irving Berlin

 

Next: A song from a Fred Astaire Musical that Judy made her own ( not from Easter Parade)

Cole Porter's " Stereophonic Sound " from Silk Stockings--

Astaire " The customers don't like to see the groom  embrace the bride

                  Unless her lips are scarlett and her mouth is 5 feet wide "

 

 When Gretchen Wyler did this number on Broadway there was one significant change in the lyrics:

                   " Unless her lips are scarlett and her bust is 5 feet wide "

 

Cole Porter's sophisticated New York City lyrics often were changed for the provincial American movie audience.
