Song of the Day - The Way You Look Tonight

Fred Astaire - The Way You Look Tonight
Film: Swing Time (1936)

I wasn't um... alive... when Swing Time came out in 1936. I didn't see it win Best Original Song at the 1936 Academy Awards, nor did I head Billie Holiday's cover released in the same year as the film. I did, however, see My Best Friend's Wedding. Rachel Griffiths and the other bridesmaid start singing 'The Way You Look Tonight' towards the end of the film and it's just lovely. Yeah, I said lovely. You would prefer maybe delightful? So, since then I've loved the song and especially Michael Buble's cover. For your enjoyment, we've got the Fred Astaire original, the awesome scene from My Best Friend's Wedding, and the Buble cover.
