Hot for Cole Porter

Cole PorterWhen you think of songs that make you want to be a torch singer and wear a bias cut gown, you think ‘I’ve got you under my skin’, ‘Night and Day’ … you think Cole Porter. He was the man behind these glittering gems of the Great American songbook.

He  was born 120 years ago today – June 9, 1891.

    Cole Porter – You’re the top!
    You’re the Coliseum.
    You’re the top!
    You’re the Louvre Museum.
    You’re a melody from a symphony by Strauss
    You’re a Bendel bonnet,
    A Shakespeare’s sonnet,
    You’re Mickey Mouse.
    You’re the Nile,
    You’re the Tower of Pisa,
    You’re the smile on the Mona Lisa
    I’m a worthless check, a total wreck, a flop,
    But if, baby, I’m the bottom you’re the top!

    And I de-loved De-lovely, the movie starring Kevin Kline, Ashely Judd and some magnificent vintage costume jewellery.
