Clifton Webb with Leo Reisman and His Orchestra – Easter Parade (1933)


Charted at #5 in 1933. From the revue, “As Thousands Cheer“. Webb and Marilyn Miller sang it in the Broadway revue. Peformed by Bing Crosby in the 1942 movie, “Holiday Inn“. Performed by Judy Garland and Fred Astaire in the 1948 movie, “Easter Parade”. Much of the melody of this song was earlier used by Berlin in the 1917 song, “Smile and Show Your Dimple” which I have also posted. 

A #11 hit for Guy Lombardo and His Royal Canadians in 1939, #16 for Harry James and His Orchestra in April 1942 and #7 for Freddie Mitchell and His Orchestra on the R&B chart in 1950.

Written by Irving Berlin.

B-side is “How’s Chances?
