I saw this movie so many years ago that only the second clue gave it away for me.

The song is "You're All The World To Me".  It was written by Alan Jay Lerner and Burton Lane and it was the song in Fred Astaire's gravity defying number in "Royal Wedding".  Here it is:

 

 

 

 

Miles, Thanks for the video. And Happy New Year to you! With enough New Year's Eve champagne, I bet you and I could dance on the ceiling too.

But for sure, we wouldn't be as graceful as Fred.

Miles, It's all yours.

Princess, maybe you could trip the light fantastic.  Me, I would just trip.

Now, here are lyrics from a song that was sung on New Year's Eve in a movie.

It's not too late
We should be giving
Only with love can we climb

Here's a hint:  This New Year's Eve party was a real disaster!

Apparently this question was a real disaster.  The song is "The Morning After" from "The Poseidon Adventure".    It was written by Al Kasha and Joel Hirschhorn and  sung in the movie by Carol Lynley, although her voice was dubbed by Renee Armand.  I only included it because it was sung on New Year's Eve in the movie.  

Let's try something a little more familiar.

The clothes you're wearing are the clothes you wore
The smile you are smiling you were smiling then

I know they did this number in one of those Mickey and Judy movies, but I was an adult before I ever saw any of those movies.

Barbra Streisand sang this on television in one of her marvelous specials-- 

A song by Rodgers and Hart from their Broadway show "Babes in Arms". No doubt, repeated in the Mickey and Judy version of that musical--truly a treasure of a song.

You are correct, Princess.  However, you forgot to name the song title.  It's "Where Or When" and it was sung by Mickey and Judy, along with Douglas McPhail and Betty Jaynes, who were married to each other at the time.  It's one of the few songs that were retained for the film from the original Broadway show.  Here is a colorized clip:

 

 

That's got to be the most talented little kids orchestra ever!  

OK, Princess, you're up next.
