Question
In 1950, Doris Day appeared in the movie musical, "Tea For Two"' A 10" Lp was released of the movie music.  My question is about the first song called "Here in My Arms".  It is a beautiful ballad all right, but in a re-look at the movie, it was not sung at any time nor was it played as an instrumental, Yet, the song is listed in the sound track credits as well.
WHAT GIVES?  Why is it not in the movie??

Answer
Hi Mike

The Tea For Two 10" on Columbia was in commemoration of the movie but wasn't a soundtrack LP. Warners was still years away from starting a record company so there was no LP in coordination with the film. Columbia had Doris go in and record some songs from the film with staffer Axel Stordahl and they threw in a few other chestnuts like the Rodgers & Hart tune you're referring to. In other words, it was a Doris Day album...with re-recorded songs from the movie...but not all the songs from the movie...and some filler..causing the confusion you've noted here.

The songs is erroneously listed as part of the movie on some web sites, which got their info from the TFT LP...not from the movie itself.

Thanks for asking,

Lou

I can answer questions about pop music from the 1950's, 1960's, 1970's and 1980's. I can help track down hard to find songs based on lyric fragments or other minimal information. I was an expert in this field but due to a family situation, was away from e-mail for a couple of weeks and forgot to put in a vacation listing with AllExperts.

Experience

I have been answering questions for this site for a few years. It would be nice to be reinstated. I have no idea how many questions I have answered but many people have written to me to say how I have touched their lives by helping them locate a song that is important to them or a loved one.
