I'm Old Fashioned

 "I'm Old Fashioned" is a 1942 song composed by Jerome Kern, with lyrics written by Johnny Mercer.

It was written for the film You Were Never Lovelier, where it was introduced by Nan Wynn who dubbed for Rita Hayworth as part of a song and dance routine with Fred Astaire.

According to Mueller: "Constructed sparsely in a kind of theme and variations form it is particularly notable for the appealing way the strains link up – especially for the poised and dramatic transitions between the A' and A" strains".

Mercer recalled working with the older Kern, and how Kern reacted to the lyrics for "I'm Old Fashioned": "We hit it off right away. I was in such awe of him, I think he must have sensed that. He was very kind to me, treated me more like a son than a collaborator. And when he thought I had a great lyric he said, 'Eva, Eva, come down here', and he kissed me on the cheek and he said, 'Eva, I want you to hear this lyric'. Well, of course I was thrilled that he liked it that much, you know. 'I'm Old Fashioned', that one was."

The first recording was made in 1942 by Astaire with John Scott Trotter and his orchestra.
