LET'S DO IT (LET'S FALL IN LOVE)

Latest update on 07/04/2017

Artist: Irene Bordoni & Arthur Margetson
Author: Cole Porter
Year: 1928

In musical Paris (A Play With Songs). Cole Porter's first big theatre hit. This song replaced Let's Misbehave shortly before the première. For Irene Bordoni, a suitable follow-up to George Gershwin's Do It Again. The title part between braquets was wisely added to avoid radio boycots.
