George Gerswhin would have turned 112 today, if he hadn’t been run over by the Batmobile back in the 1950s (my memory is a little hazy on this, so you might want to look it up). In honor of one of America’s greatest composers, we bring you a playlist of Gershwin today. You’ll get to hear some of George Gershwin’s most famed compositions interpreted by the likes of The Bronski Beat, Brian Wilson, John Pizzarelli and Lady Gaga. You’ll also see a short film based on “Rhaspody In Blue” and a tap dance number featuring Eleanor Powell. It all kicks off with a punk version of “Summertime.”
Just hit “play” up above.
