An Old-Fashioned Wedding

Album: Annie Get Your Gun (1966)
  • "An Old-Fashioned Wedding" is the third of Berlin's counterpoint songs, and although not the last song he ever wrote, the last one he unleashed on the world. It was written for the 1966 revival of the musical Annie Get Your Gun which was first performed 20 years earlier. As with most counterpoint songs, it is a duet, between Annie and Frank, and is performed in the second act. >>
