This one's from the movie, Holiday Inn, starring Bing Crosby and Fred Astaire. The film features the amazing music of Irving Berlin. In fact, it was this movie that premiered Berlin's classic, "White Christmas." Can you imagine sitting in a movie theater and hearing that song sung by Bing for the FIRST time? Heavenly!
But I've chosen another song from the movie for today, the one that appears in the Thanksgiving segment. It's called "Plenty to be Thankful For," and I just love it, particularly when it's sung the incomparable Bing.
The artist who compiled this video uses several clips from the movie, along with photos of Bing's brother, Bob Crosby and his big band. Apparently, Bob's orchestra performed the accompaniment for this number, so he's given his due praise as well!
I'll warn you before you listen, though, this tune is CATCHY! I DARE you not to be humming it while you enjoy your turkey and mashed potatoes today!! Enjoy!
