Cheek to Cheek

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
For other uses, see Cheek to Cheek (disambiguation).

"Cheek to Cheek" is a song written by Irving Berlin in 1935,[1] for the Fred Astaire/Ginger Rogers movie Top Hat (1935).[2] In the movie, Astaire sings the song to Rogers as they dance. The song was nominated for the Best Song Academy Award for 1936, which it lost to "Lullaby of Broadway".[3] Astaire's recording of the song in 1935 spent five weeks at #1 on Your Hit Parade and was named the #1 song of 1935.[2] Astaire's 1935 recording with the Leo Reisman Orchestra was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 2000.[4] In 2004, Astaire's version finished at #15 on AFI's 100 Years...100 Songs survey of top tunes in American cinema.

In 1985, the song was played during the opening credits and at the end in Woody Allen's The Purple Rose of Cairo.

The song, as sung by Astaire, and separately by Ella Fitzgerald (see her 1956 album Ella and Louis), is featured in the movie The English Patient.[5]

The song was played, with the clip from the movie, in The Green Mile, as well as in one of the episodes of the British TV Comedy Series To the Manor Born .
