Good Charlotte's new song called *Silver Screen Romance*: it goes a little something like this; *"You'll be my Bette Davis, I'll be your Cary Grant. Living in a silver screen romance."*

This weekend I watched "White Christmas" for the umpteenth time. In the song "Gee, I Wish I Was Back In The Army" there is a part that goes:

 

Gee, I wish I was back in the army,

The shows we get, civilians couldn't see.

How we would yell,

For Dietrich and Cornell,

Jolson, Hope, and Benny all for free.

Cherry Poppin Daddies (I know--horrible name, but good music) have a song call "Shake your Lovemaker" with a line about doing "the Fred Astaire Slide."

 

Bare Naked Ladies song "One Week" mentions Harrison Ford and Kurosawa.

 

Peter Murphy has a song called "Marlene Dietrich's Favorite Poem" and Susan Vega has one called "Marlene on the Wall."

As we found out in the "Do You Know This Song?" thread, the song "Thanks a Lot But No Thanks" from "Its Always Fair Weather" mentions John Wayne and Fred Astaire. We also found out that in "Stowaway", Shirley Temple sings "You've Got To S-M-I-L-E (To Be H-A-Double-P-Y)". In that song, she mentions Al Jolson, Eddie Cantor, Ginger Rogers, Fred Astaire, and even Parkyarkarkus". She imitates Jolson and Cantor, and she dances with a Fred Astaire puppet. Speaking of Fred Astaire, in "Swing Time", he sings a song called "Never Gonna Dance", which contains the line "And to Groucho Marx, I give my cravat, to Harpo goes my shiny silk hat". Fred seems a popular choice for movie star songs.
