The song was later used in the musical Anything Goes, first appearing in the 1962 revival where it was sung by Hal Linden & Barbara Lang. The hit records in late 1936 and early 1937 included versions by Eddy Duchin, Shep Fields, and Will Osborne. Kitty Brown also recorded the song with Les Brown’s Band of Renown.

The song played with words that have the prefix “de”, which leads to the creation of the neologism “de-lovely”: “It’s de-lightful, it’s de-licious, it’s de-lovely.”
