Song Lyric Sunday: Robbie Williams, “It’s De-Lovely”

Jim took a suggestion from Paula for this week’s prompt, which is "Delightful, Pleasant, Sweet." I have the perfect song for that…

"It’s De-Lovely" is a song Cole Porter wrote for his 1936 musical Red Hot And Blue, where it was first sung by Ethel Merman and Bob Hope. It was later used in Porter’s 1934 musical Anything Goes when it was filmed in 1956, where Mitzi Gaynor and Donald O’Connor performed it. Hal Linden and Barbara Lang did it for the 1962 revival of the show, and Robbie Williams, whose version I’m using, did it in the 2004 biopic De-Lovely, which starred Kevin Kline and Ashley Judd. Wikipedia lists others who have recorded it.

The reason I chose the Williams version was because the lyrics are in the video. If you prefer, you can see the lyrics on AZLyrics.

And that’s Song Lyric Sunday, and Song of the Day, for September 19, 2021.
