In the Gershwins' 1930 hit musical, Girl Crazy, cowgirl postmistress Molly Gray, of the Wild West boondocks, vacillates between contempt and hopeless love for New York playboy Danny Churchill. Having already sung "Embraceable You" with Danny in the first act, by the second and final act her feelings have definitely shifted toward the latter --
Old Man Sunshine listen you!
Never tell me, "Dreams come true!"
Just try it
And I'll start a riot...
-- though not without a large dose of lingering ambivalence --
They're writing songs of love,
But not for me.
A lucky star's above
But not for me
-- reflected in the gently rocking melody, which rises in the anthem-like Gershwin manner:
With love to lead the way
I've found more clouds of gray
Than any Russian play could guarantee....
sung by the 19-year-old Ginger Rogers, doing her second Broadway show.
