They All Laughed

They all laughed at Christopher Columbus
When he said the world was round
They all laughed when Edison recorded sound

Music by George Gershwin, lyrics by Ira Gershwin.  Composed for the 1937 film Shall We Dance starring Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers.  This version sung by the mellifluous Ella Fitzgerald.


  1. Tony Bennett still performs this great song, saw him recently perform it in his set!

  2. Mellifluous is right and I'm guessing the same for Tony. dm
