"The Song Is You"
composed by Jerome Kern with lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II.
It was written for their musical Music in the Air (1932) and sung in that show by Tullio Carminati.
In the subsequent 1934 film, the song was recorded and filmed but cut from the final release. An instrumental of the song can still be heard under the opening credits.

In later years the song became often associated with Frank Sinatra.
But many many have recorded it.

"The Song Is You" is the recurring musical theme of the 2003 Guy Maddin film The Saddest Music in the World. Nine different versions of the song were arranged for the film by composer Christopher Dedrick, whose work received a Genie Award.
