A very manly thread about Show Tunes


A few of my favorites:

Gene Kelly & Vera-Ellen -- "Slaughter On Tenth Avenue"
written by Rodgers & Hart. Vera-Allen is pretty hot in this

Judy Garland & Fred Astaire -- "A Couple Of Swells"
written by Irving Berlin

Jason Robards & Norman Wisdom -- "Perfect Gentleman"
from The Night They Raided Minsky's (1968)

Marvin Hayes -- "Stand Up And Fight"
from Carmen Jones(1954). Music by Bizet, lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein

Gen Kelly Dan Dailey & Michael Kidd -- It's Always Fair Weather
a favorite dance number of mine

If you like show tunes, there is a good show that plays them on Saturdays on WERS Boston. Streams live. I think it comes in late morning early afternoon.
