Movie Song of the Week: “Lullaby of Broadway”

This probably will be the last movie song I post before Easter so it might as well be a doozy. From 1935's Gold Diggers of 1935, it's a Busby Berkeley number that aims to be the ultimate Busby Berkeley number.

The first time I saw it, I couldn't help but wax morbid and imagine it to be a vision from the afterlife. But I guess one could just as easily interpret it to be a dream sequence. After all, not too many dead people smoke cigarettes. Or do they?

Anyway, the number starts here:

And ends here:

I hope you all like it.
