Why is it that films get all the good songs? Well I suppose it’s obvious really, the sound track of a film is as much a part of the story as the talking and the acting, it’s the part you don’t notice, but you would if it wasn’t there. This week we’re going for a fairly old film, but one still considered a classic if you’re of a certain age…
“It Had To Be You” by Harry Connick Jr was written originally by Isham Jones and Gus Kahn in 1924, and made a household whistler a good 60 years later by Harry for his soundtrack of When Harry Met Sally in 1989 (actually sung by Frank Sinatra on the film though). It’s a gorgeous crooner for being whisked about the floor, but you might want to talk your beau into a little quickstep lesson for the full Fred & Ginger experience.
