LOVE IS IN DA BLOG 8 ~ A LOVE SONG FROM 1929-1938 – “Embraceable You” – George and Ira Gershwin

Embraceable You” is a popular jazz song with music by George Gershwin and lyrics by Ira Gershwin. The song was written in 1928 for an unpublished operetta named East Is West. It was published in 1930 and included in the Broadway musical Girl Crazy where Ginger Rogers performed it in a song and dance routine choreographed by Fred Astaire.

I have chose two versions, the first is from George Gershwin and the second comes from Ginger Rogers originally performed in Girl Crazy in 1930, the version I have included here is from Ginger’s jazz album in 1978 Miss Ginger Rogers!


That’s what’s in “My Rattled Cage”, thanks for stopping by!!!
