    This is a game where we post a line from a song that we all might be familiar with and try to identify the song.

    Hi GB

    Number 2 is:
    "With A Song In My Heart" for you.
    By Rodgers and Hart. After Larry Hart died, Oscar Hammerstein
    became the lyricist.

    Number 3 is our old friend:
    I walk down the lane With a happy refrain.
    Just singin', "Singin' in the Rain".

    The producer of the movie Singin' in the Rain was
    Arthur Freed The Freed unit produced most of MGM's
    greatest musicals. Freed was originally a song writer. He and
    Nacio Herb Brown wrote all but one of the songs in the film.

    Number 1 sounds familiar. Can't place number 4.

    Hi Diane

    I know all those songs. Maybe I'll wait and give some other poster
    a chance.

    Loved the movie Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. Don't care for
    Bacharach's music though. I read a book by Butch's sister years ago.
    Her name was Lula Parker Betenson. She said Butch came back to
    America and got a job as a printer. Butch was aka Robert LeRoy Parker,
    the grandson of a Mormon Bishop.

    Ooh Ooh.... GB, I know Number 4:

    SIXTEEN TONS, Tennessee Ernie Ford

    One of my fave songs!

    GB, Number 1 "that happy feeling" is Irving Berlin's salute to the world of
    entertainment. There's No Business Like Show business."

    Number 2 "Time goes by so slowly" is from Unchained Melody which comes
    from an obscure 50s movie titled (care to guess?) Unchained. The score was
    by Alex North. North was nominated for 15 Academy Awards. Finally was
    given an honorary award when he was 76. Hugo Friedhofer, film composer who
    won an Oscar for The Best Years of Our Lives said the nomination was a
    greater honor than winning. "The nomination is by your peers. The win is
    a popularity contest."

    Number 3 "Goal posts down" is from Moments to Remember. One of my
    friends sang it our Prom dinner. She asked me to write another verse 'cause
    the song was too short. I was happy to oblige even if I did not get a statuette.

    I think there are still 2 songs Diane posted. One is New York, New
    York. The other is Stormy Weather.

    Right on all counts everybody! Rock, do you remember the verse you wrote for your prom dinner? A girl also sang that song at our last assembly in high school that year. Guess it was popular for a time.

    We also used There's No Business Like Show Business for the theme of our jr. high production in assembly. My 8th grade class 'produced' a great show. It was a circus. Had so much fun. Three of my friends and I sang several numbers. We danced too. It was awful but we loved it.

    Our home room teacher was a talented man and he supervised the show. I want to go back. :( GB

    Hi everybody!

    Here's some more to ponder. Y'all are great at this game .... you'll guess them in no time! :)

    "When the dog bites, When the bee stings"

    "Wherever you're going, I'm going your way"

    "Clear the decks, clear the tracks, You've got nothing to do but relax"

    "Wherever you may be, I'll be beside you, Although you're many million dreams away"

    Good luck!

    Well, what a kawinkydink. I was gonna say I know the first two, Diane, and GB will
    probably know the rest.

    Oh, no, Diane. I don't remember the verse I wrote for Moments to Remember.
    I feel sure they were absolutely brilliant though. Ha Ha! Some decades back I
    was looking through an old scrap book my Mom had put together. The covers were
    made of wood. No doubt someone would buy it on EBay for big money like ten bucks.
    Inside were some Homcoming pins from the 40s and 50s. They too were made
    of wood. Well, it wasn't yet a plastic world.

    I had copies of some verses I wrote that were published in poetry magazines
    years ago. They all disappeared about 3 moves ago. Nobody cares. Not even me.

    Oh yeah, the scrapbook also contained a play I wrote that was put on at school.
    I was surprised to find the script in the scrapbook too. I was even more
    surprised to find it was only 2 pages long. I guess skit would be a more appropriate
    term. If I had been born into a family with ties to show biz, I could
    have been a screenwriter. The old Hollywood studios always had lots of relatives
    on the payroll.

    The most notorious studio for nepotism was Universal. Founder Carl Laemmle
    made his son the head of production when Jr. was only 21. And the payroll included
    a hundred or so relatives from Germany. None of whom knew anything about
    making movies and most of whom spoke no English.

    Sorry to hear your allergies are so bad. I have allergies too, but the problems
    are minor. Sounds like yours are at the other end of the continuum.

    GB, do you still have pics or home movies of your show biz career? I used to be
    in class plays and stuff. Didn't have any more talent than an old hen. I think
    Doc Gibbs said that about his wife who insisted on singing in the church choir.
    (Our Town). "You get some rest too."

    Rock, T'was I that asked about your song writing! I was wondering if you remembered the verse you wrote for "Moments to Remember" for the Prom.

    No, I don't have any pics of the school events I was in. No one in the family took pics back then. No home movies either. I do have a few photos of my choral groups. We looked so young, oh, that's right, we were! :)

    Don't have much in the way of high school memorabilia. I did earn jr high and high school letters for chorus however. I always thought I would have been happy to have a career in some form of show business. I'm fascinated by the whole thing. Trouble is, I didn't have any real musical talent. :) Maybe I would have been a good actress. I am quite the drama queen and being a diva/prima donna appeals to me too. GB

    Oh, sorry for the mix up, GB. My mind gets worser and worser by the day. Last
    week I finally started using a an organizer box with daily compartments. Last
    night I found the Friday compartment opened, but the pills were still in it.
    Apparently I started to take them; then got distracted. Uff-duh!

    Yes, it would be nice to be born with talent. Being lucky appears to be
    equally important. And a ferocious determination to succeed always helps.
    People like Joan Crawford and Barbara Stanwyck were known for their
    total devotion to their career. They were terrible in other roles such as
    wife or mother.

    From a book titled Movie Anecdotes: Joan Crawford and Bette Davis had
    some legendary fights on the set of "Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?"
    When asked about their relationship, La Crawford said, "Bette and I work
    differently. Bette screams, and I knit. While she screamed, I knitted a
    scarf that stretched clear to Malibu."

    Well, here are some lyrics to identify.

    You can go to Hartford, Heatherford, and Hampshire.

    Wall Street bankers are we; with plenty of currency. We'd open up
    the safe but we forgot where we put the key.

    Like a drum my heart was beating, and your kiss was sweet as wine.

    You once thought of me as a white knight on his steed
    Now you know how happy I can be.

    The prettiest girl around
    Golden hair and eyes of blue
    How those eyes could flash at you.

    Live free and beauty surrounds you
    The world still astounds you
    Each time you look at a star
