third hint:

Four people collaborated on the writing of the song.

Bagel, that clue gave it away. I remember so vividly seeing all those people on the stage for just one little song.

" When you get caught between the Moon and New York City "-Arthur's Theme"

 Chris Cross sang it and wrote it  along with Burt Bacharach and his second wife Carole Bayer Sager and Liza Minnelli's ex-husband Peter Allen.

Yes!

The title of the song is "Arthur's Theme (Best That You Can Do)", but the song is probably best known for the line "When you get caught between the moon and New York City" ----- which was Peter Allen's contribution.

Here's clip of Christopher Cross singing the song accompanied on the piano by Dudley Moore, who played the title role in the movie Arthur.

Good job, Princess of Tap! It's your turn.

The song is "Mack The Black", written by Cole Porter for "The Pirate".  It was sung by a very energetic Judy Garland.  Here she is:

 

Miles, You're still One in a Million!

"Mack The Black" is not a well-known Cole Porter song and it certainly is not an easy set of lyrics to follow.

I think It's Judy's most challenging production number from her MGM career.

Thanks for the video and please don't make the next one too hard.LOL

Right movie, right singers, right composers, but wrong song title.  Sorry Starlit, the song is "Could You Use Me?".  Here it is:

 

 

 

"Treat Me Rough" was sung by June Allyson, Mickey, and chorus earlier in the picture.  

That's okay, Starlit.  You still get to go next.

After two days, I'm surprised that no one has gotten it  The song is "There's A Lull In My Life".  It was written by Mack Gordon and Harry Revel for a movie called "Wake Up And Live" where it was sung by Alice Faye with Ben Bernie and his orchestra.   Yowza, Yowza, Yowza! 

I couldn't find a film clip, but I did find this recording by Alice Faye.

Thanks, Starlit.  This next one shouldn't be too difficult:

When you smile at me, I hear gypsy violins
When you dance with me, I'm in heaven when the music begins
   

 

 

 

Miles, can you give us a hint?
