Song & Dance: Irving Berlin @ 119

Today is Irving Berlin's birthday. Well... if he had lived to be 119 years old. His songbook is just ---gah, gargantuan and awesome. The songs speak for themselves so here are four (random choices) to love today from some movies: "Cheek to Cheek", "Puttin' on the Ritz", "There's No Business Like Show Business" and "Heatwave"

and especially for ModFab here's a bonus to brighten your day: the one and only Shirley Bassey with a sensational version of "Let Me Sing, I'm Happy"
