Cole Porter

Cole Porter second full-length movie musical was a vehicle for Nelson Eddy with Eleanor Powell and Frank Morgan called Rosalie. Eddy's voice dominates the film: he sings five of the eight songs, including the movie's one big hit, "In the Still of the Night." The first recording of the song, however, was not made by Eddy but rather by Tommy Dorsey & His Orchestra with vocalist Jack Leonard. The song itself is seduction music of a very high order, with a melody in the verse that insinuates itself into the heart of the listener through rhythmic repetition and a melody in the bridge that soars over every possible objection to ask and answer the question "do you love me?"
