Another track The Caretaker samples. But the original is better!

A Fine Romance: Part I: THE SONG
“A Fine Romance” with music by Jerome Kern and lyrics by Dorothy Fields was written for the film Swing Time in 1936. It’s a funny, almost sarcastic little song in which Ginger bemoans Fred’s persistence in avoiding any romantic ties to her, and then Fred echoes her when he’s ready to start a romance but she turns on the great freeze. Basically, it’s what every Fred and Ginger fan feels about the fact that they NEVER KISS, as in REALLY kiss, until, I think, Carefree, which is their EIGHTH movie together. I mean, really. A fine romance indeed. Enjoy!
