Exploring the history of the groove

“The Way You Look Tonight” by Bing Crosby

Rendition by: Bing Crosby

“The Way You Look Tonight,” was originally written for the movie, “Swing Time,” that came out in 1936. It was written by Jerome Kern, lyrics were written by Dorothy Fields, and it was originally performed by Frank Sinatra. Since this song is from the Jazz genre, it has a catchy, swinging tune to it. This song “won the Best Song Oscar,” in 1936, the same year that, “Swing Time,” premiered. There have been multiple artists who have made their own renditions of this song, including Bing Crosby. In his rendition of this song, Crosby sings with his wife, Dixie Lee Crosby. “The Way You Look Tonight, has become a timeless classic, as it is still rather popular, even though it is almost 100 years old.
