1979 (A wonderful Production Number! From Shirley Bassey TV Variety Show)

"Isn't This a Lovely Day?" is a popular song written by Irving Berlin for the 1935 film Top Hat, where it was introduced by Fred Astaire in the scene where his and Ginger Rogers' characters are caught in a gazebo during a rainstorm. The lyric is a perfect example of a song which turns a bad situation into a love song, a common style for Irving Berlin, as in I've Got My Love to Keep Me Warm and Let's Have Another Cup of Coffee.

Isn't this a lovely day
To be caught in the rain?
You were going on your
Now you've got to remain

Just as you were going, leaving me all at sea
clouds broke, they broke and oh!
What a break for me

I can see the sun up high
we're caught in the storm
I can see where you and i
Could be cozy and warm

Let the
rain pitter patter
But it really doesn't matter
If the skies are gray
Long as i can be
with you it's a lovely day
