Do You Know This Song?


Recommended Posts

I don?t know if there is a thread quite like this or not. I am not trying to be like the Movie Music thread, with questions with involved research, history of things, facts and elaborate answers. Instead, I will post a line to a song (which invariably means it?s from a musical) and all I?m asking for is the next line of the song and the name of the movie musical it?s from. You can give as many of the lines of the song that follow, but you don?t have to go all out. I would ask for the name of the song, but I want this to keep moving and not be held up trying to get the exact title. In the spirit of musicals, do you know this song?


Next line and movie title for?


?Our daughters? daughters will adore us??

This is not from a musical, but the theme melody and lyrics are so good I thought I'd put it in:


"...Like a tunnel that you follow to a tunnel of its own,

Down a highway to a cavern where the sun has never shone;

Like a door that keeps revolving in a half-forgotten dream,

Or the ripples from a pebble someone tosses in the stream;

Like a clock whose hands are sweeping past the minutes of its face,

And the world is like an apple whirling silently in space..."

This really great song, composed by Michel Legrand and with lyrics by Alan and Marilyn Bergman (who have both been all but forgotten as contributors to the song), has been covered by lots of singers, but I think the best version is still the one from the movie, sung by Noel Harrison, Rex's son.


...Like the circles that you find

In the windmills of your mind."


Your turn...

Thanks, this one's a little unique:


Ereway inhay the oneymay, ereway in hay the oneymay!

Eveway otgay ayay otlay ofway atwhay itay akestay otay etgay aylayongwayo!


I don't expect you to know the next line, but can you name the song, the movie it was from, and the person who sang it?

Yes, for those who need a translation, my two lines were;


We're in the money, we're in the money!

We've got a lot of what it takes to get along!


According to Robert Osborne, Ginger was singing it in pig latin on the set and the director, Mervyn Leroy, who was her boyfriend at the time, thought it was cute and decided to put it into the movie. Your turn, skip.

Here's another beautiful song from a black and white musical of the thirties, sung as a duet by two great singers . The composer considered this operetta his best...


"Our love is so sweet in the springtime,

When blossoms are fragrant in May;

No years that are coming can bring time

To make me forget, dear, this day.


I'll love you in life's gray December

The same as I love you today;

My heart ever young will remember

The thrill it knew, this day in May."....

Sweetheart, sweetheart, sweetheart,

Will you love me ever?

Will you remember this day

When we were happy in May?

My dearest one!


The song is called "Will You Remember?" and it was sung by Nelson Eddy and Jeanette MacDonald in Sigmund Romberg's "Maytime". Did you know that the original New York stage production starred Peggy Wood, who would go on to star in the TV series, "I Remember Mama"? She would also play the Mother Superior in the film version of "The Sound Of Music".

See if you know this song and movie:


A long time ago, a million years B.C.

The best things in life were absolutely free,

But no one appreciated a sky that was always blue,

And no one congratulated a moon that was always new.

So it was planned that they would vanish now and then,

And you must pay before you get them back again.

That's what storms were made for,

So you shouldn't be afraid, for

........ ... ......... ... ........ .... ........ .......... ...... ..............


This is from memory, so forgive me if a few words are incorrect. This was also from a thirties movie.

That's the prelude to Pennies From Heaven...

Then it goes:


"Everytime it rains,

It rains pennies from heaven?

Don't you know each cloud contains

Pennies from heaven?

You'll find your fortune falling

All over town

Be sure that your umbrella

Is upside down....


Sung by Bing Crosby in "Pennies From Heaven"...Music by Arthur Johnson and Lyrics by Johnny Burke.

Here's a nice one from the forties:


" I wonder why does everybody look at me,

And then begin to talk about a Christmas tree.

I hope that means everybody is glad to see...."


This was a famous song and the title is revealed in the next line...Once you know the title, the singer will be obvious...Movie?...Now, Miles, contain yourself. Ha..ha..

That's her, Six. I have her DVD set and watched two of her movies recently. And actually, she's an underrated performer in my opinion. She dances the Samba with her hips and hands while singing. They say that back in the forties the President wanted to increase ties with Central and South America so he encouraged Hollywood and the media to invite many of the Latin performers to the U.S. Too bad she died of a heart attack at 46, a few hours after performing in the Jimmy Durante show.....Your turn.

Thanks. Next, an easy one :



"...All the trials and tribulation

Better settle down and get myself a wife;


And a wife would cook and sew for me,

And come for me and go for me;

And go for me and nag at me,

The fingers she will wag at me,

The money she will take from me;

Ah, misery she'll make for me..


I think I'd better think it out again!.."
