They Can’t Take That Away From Me – SATB


The famous 1937 song written by George Gershwin and Ira Gershwin and introduced by Fred Astaire in the 1937 film Shall We Dance. The song is performed by Astaire on the foggy deck of the ferry from New Jersey to Manhattan. It is sung to Ginger Rogers, who remains silent, listening throughout. No dance sequence follows, which was unusual for the Astaire-Rogers numbers. A wonderful song that builds from the start into a rhythmic piece that will have everyone swaying along.
