"Where is the Song of Songs for me?"
Words and music by Irving Berlin
Sung by Lupe Vélez with studio orchestra
Recorded March 30, 1929, New York
From the film "Lady of the Pavements"
United Artists (1929)
Lupe Vélez made her mark in pictures as a seductress (she was known as the Mexican Spitfire). In 1929 she appeared in Lady of the Pavements, a sentimental costumeromance in which she played a Spanish dancer in love with a Prussian aristocrat played by, of all people, William Boyd, better known as Hopalong Cassidy. D.W. Griffith directed this silent picture, which was hastily converted into sound, and Berlin's Where Is the Song of Songs for Me? and occasionaldialogue were inserted.
