Wonderful Town! New York.
I heard on the radio the other day the song New York New York from the 1940's movie 'On The Town'. The song begins as three Sailors take shore leave from their ship during the Second World War. The clip stars Gene Kelly as Gabey, Frank Sinatra as Chip, Jules Munshin as Ozzie and depicts how exciting a day in vibrant New York can be, years on this still seems to be the case!
On the Town was first produced on Broadway in 1944 and was made into a film in 1949 by MGM.
I found a clip of the song on YouTube uploaded by Jacob Wingfield .....http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=x7CIgWZTdgw
