Cheek to Cheek lyrics

 Heaven... I'm in heaven,
 And my heart beats so that I can hardly speak.
 And I seem to find the happiness I seek,
 When we're out together dancing cheek to cheek. 

 Heaven... I'm in heaven,
 And the cares that hung around me through
  the week,
 Seem to vanish like a gambler's lucky streak,
 When we're out together dancing cheek to cheek.
 
 Oh, I love to climb a mountain,
 And to reach the highest peak.
 But it doesn't thrill me half as much
 As dancing cheek to cheek.
 
 Oh, I love to go out fishing
 In a river or a creek.
 But I don't enjoy it half as much
 As dancing cheek to cheek.
 
 Dance with me! I want my arms about you.
 The charms about you
 Will carry me through to...
 
 Heaven... I'm in heaven,
 And my heart beats so that I can hardly speak.
 And I seem to find the happiness I seek,
 When we're out together dancing cheek to cheek.



Top Hat Cheek to Cheek video song reviews from users:

Rating 5  Astaire Cheek
For the "Cheek to Cheek" number, Ginger Rogers wanted to wear an elaborate blue dress heavily decked out with ostrich feathers. When director Mark Sandrich and Fred Astaire saw the dress, they knew it would be impractical for the dance. As there was no time for rehearsals, Ginger Rogers wore the blue feathered dress for the first time during filming, and as Astaire and Sandrich had feared, feathers started coming off the dress. Astaire later claimed it was like "a chicken being attacked by a coyote".

Rating 5  Cheek Ginger
In Top Hat (1935) was the first time when Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers had a screenplay written specifically for them. Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers dance together five times in this film. They would dance that many times together in only this film.

Rating 5  Irving Hat
In one scene at the Lido, Madge orders a drink called a "horse's neck". It is traditionally served with a spiral of lemon (or orange) peel hanging over the edge of the glass, suggesting the curve of a horse's neck. It calls for 2 oz of bourbon or brandy, 4 oz of ginger ale, and a dash of bitters, over ice.

Rating 5  Top Tremont
After Fred Astaire met Irving Berlin while filming Top Hat (1935) they became lifelong friends.
