“Just One of Those Things” is a popular song written by Cole Porter for the 1935 musical Jubilee.

Porter had written the score for Jubilee while on an extended sea cruise in the early part of 1935: however in September 1935 while Porter was visiting a friend’s farm in Ohio with Jubilee’s librettist Moss Hart the latter mentioned that the play’s second act required an additional song, and Porter had “Just One of Those Things” completed by the following morning (Porter had previously used the title for a song intended but not featured in the 1930 musical The New Yorkers – apart from the title the two songs are distinct.) Porter’s original lyric lacked an adjective for the line “a trip to the moon on gossamer wings”: gossamer would be suggested by his friend Ed Tauch.

“Just One of Those Things” was featured in two Doris Day musical films, Lullaby of Broadway (1951) and Young at Heart (1954), and also in the film version of Can-Can (1960) in which it’s performed by Maurice Chevalier.
