Music Monday: The Lady Is A Tramp


Happy Monday everyone and welcome back to Music Monday! Let's share some songs we've been enjoying lately!  If you would like to play and I really hope you do, please see the rules and link up below.

Rules:

Every Monday share a few songs you've been enjoying lately.  It doesn't have to be a specific genre, new, or one of your favorites - just something you'd like to share with others.  If possible, share a music or lyric video of the song and your thoughts on the song(s), artist(s), and/or music video(s).

If you would like to participate in Music Monday, please join the link up by sharing your post's url.

So, I don't know about you, but I just realized "The Lady Is A Tramp" wasn't written specifically for Frank Sinatra in Pal Joey (1957).  Instead, it was originally a part of the 1937 musical Babes in Arms and there are tons of very early cover of it from around 1937.  Below, I've included the scene from Pal Joey and a 1937 cover of it by Tommy Dorsey and His Orchestra with Edythe Wright (1937) - which has a great sound and slightly different lyrics.  Enjoy!
