In 1932, Random House published George Gershwin's Song-Book, which was dedicated to Kay Swift. It contained eighteen songs: “Swanee,” “Nobody but You,” “Stairway to Paradise,” “Do It Again,” “Fascinating Rhythm,” “Oh, Lady, Be Good!,” “Somebody Loves Me,” “Sweet and Low-Down,” “That Certain Feeling,” “The Man I Love,” “Clap Yo' Hands,” “Do, Do, Do,” “My One and Only,” “'S Wonderful,” “Strike Up the Band,” “Liza,” “I Got Rhythm,” and “Who Cares?” This chapter on Gershwin's Song-Book considers some of the wide uses of the Gershwin songbook on record, on film, and in theaters.
