Showtune Saturday: “Well, Did You Ever?”

Eddie Pensier writes:

The combined nonchalant swingin’ coolness of Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra and Cole Porter may cause swooning fits of “why can’t I be that awesome?” nostalgia.

From High Society (1956), the Charles Walters-directed musical adaptation of The Philadelphia Story. Also features Grace Kelly in her last film role, as well as Celeste Holm and Louis Armstrong.

    I’ve always enjoyed the rather demented Debbie Harry & Iggy Pop rendition with it’s low-rent video. They ain’t no Frank and Bing, mind you. Love the little synchronized kick the two gents do going out the door at the end!

    A personal favorite is the 1971 Atlantic LP “Bobby Short Loves Cole Porter”, two discs of pure bliss.
