"Cheek to Cheek" as written by Maria Andersson, Josephine Forsman, Jennie Asplund and Johanna Asplund....
Heaven, I'm in heaven
And my heart beats so that I can hardly speak
And I seem to find the happiness I seek
When we're out together dancing, cheek to cheek

Heaven, I'm in heaven
And the cares that hung around me through the week
Seem to vanish like a gambler's lucky streak
When we're out together dancing, cheek to cheek

Oh! I love to climb a mountain
And to reach the highest peak
But it doesn't thrill me half as much
As dancing cheek to cheek

Oh! I love to go out fishing
In a river or a creek
But I don't enjoy it half as much
As dancing cheek to cheek

Dance with me
I want my arm about you
The charm about you
Will carry me through to heaven

I'm in heaven
And my heart beats so that I can hardly speak
And I seem to find the happiness I seek
When we're out together dancing cheek to cheek

    General Commentmy grandmother use to try to sing this to me when i was young. of course - she hardly spoke a word of english and it's almost comical looking back on it now, but i can't help but smile whenever i hear this song.

    General CommentThis song is the song John Coffey listens to in The Green Mile, that's why I like it :)

    My InterpretationWhen you hear Louie Armstrong sing it with Ella Fitzgerald, he changes it to "I'd love to climb two mountains" and if you listen to the way he follows THAT up with "I like to go out fishing" you can tell EXACTLY what he's thinking about.

    I'm not saying that's what the song was about, but .. that's exactly what the song is about. XD
