Let's Face The Music and Dance

For the Willie Nelson album, see Let's Face the Music and Dance (album).

"Let's Face the Music and Dance" is a song written in 1936 by Irving Berlin for the film Follow the Fleet, where it was introduced by Fred Astaire and featured in a celebrated dance duet with Astaire and Ginger Rogers. It is also used in Pennies from Heaven, where Astaire's voice is lip-synched by Steve Martin, and in a celebrated Morecambe and Wise sketch involving newsreader Angela Rippon.[1] [2]

Barbra Streisand performed a line in her "Color Me Barbra Medley" from the TV special and album "Color Me Barbra".

In "New Killer Star", song from David Bowie 2003 album Reality, there's a reference of the title before the chorus.

The BBC used Nat King Cole's version of the song as their theme music for the mockumentary series Twenty Twelve.
