Even the most miserable life is better than a sheltered existence in an organized society where everything is calculated and perfected.
Cheek to Cheek (1935) - Irving Berlin
Written for the film Top Hat, Cheek to Cheek proved to be a big hit. Astaire’s recording of it spent five weeks as number one on the ‘Your Hit Parade’ chart and was named the number one song of 1935. The song was also nominated for an Academy Award. The song has been re-recorded numerous times, and the number and it’s accompanying dance number have become intrinsically linked to the memory of the Astaire/Rogers partnership.
Beyond your face I saw a pure, beautiful vision showing us in the perspective of my whole life…all the year to come, even all the years past.
