Sunday Music

Lullaby of Broadway

This song, I know all of the words.

I’ve mentioned the afternoon film that used to be shown on BBC2 on Saturday afternoons. It’s where I learnt to love the ‘Goldiggers..’ films. It’s also an inheritance from my mother, she loves this song and that’s where I learnt to love it too.

It was in Goldiggers of ’35 but the song is from more than that film, it’s in 42nd Street too (sorry I don’t know which was first)…I have at least 5 versions of it.

The Dorsey Brothers

Ma’s favourite version – Al Bowlly

There are version’s by Ella, Doris Day, Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett.

Dick Powell

The Andrews Sisters

And the Muppets!
