It's a little known fact that many popular music standards of the Tin Pan Alley era were written by women. But between 1920 and 1949, 178 women joined ASCAP, and Dorothy Fields, Kay Swift, Dana Suesse and Ann Ronell were among the most influential songwriters of the time. Their music was heard everywhere--from the vaudeville stages to Broadway, across the airwaves and at the movies. Yours for a Song pays tribute to the lives and work of these remarkable women. Features Betty Buckley, Michael Feinstein, Robert White, Nora Michaels and others performing their interpretations of classic songs written by the women of Tin Pan Alley. Also includes archival footage, motion picture clips and rarely-seen photographs from the "Golden Age of Songwriting" as well as performance clips of Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald and Perry Como. Songs include: "Yours for a Song," "You Ougtha Be in Pictures," "If My Friends Could See Me Now," "The Way You Look Tonight," "A Fine Romance," "I'm in the Mood for Love," "Willow Weep for Me," "Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf?," "Fine and Dandy," "Can't We Be Friends?," "I Can't Give You Anything But Love." 55 minutes.
