"Let's Call the Whole Thing Off (Shall We Dance)"
Ginger Rogers & Fred Astaire
Let’s Call the Whole Thing Off: THE SONG
Written by George Gershwin with lyrics by Ira Gershwin, “Let’s Call the Whole Thing Off” is a clever song about class differences (Ira claimed the idea came to him in 1926 but remained unused until 1937, when Shall We Dance was made). Fred and Ginger sing alternate verses of the song before gliding into a number made famous by the sheer fact that the two dance on roller skates, proving to the world that there is, in fact, nothing Fred and Ginger can’t do.
