25 Songs-Day 11
A song from your favorite movie.

My favorite movie is It’s a Wonderful Life. I have seen this movie more times than I can count and have been known to watch it every day between Thanksgiving and Christmas some years.

This movie was made in 1946 and stars Jimmy Stewart and Donna Reed. It is set around Christmas time but most of the movie is flashback of the life of George Bailey. He is in dire straights and thinks he would be worth more dead than alive (life insurance policy). An angel comes to Earth to show George what a wonderful life he’s had and how many people he positively affected throughout his life. He shows George what life would be like if he did not exist. By movie’s end, George realizes that his life has had value and he does want to live!

The main song throughout the movie is Buffalo Gals which is an old song from the 1800s. The version in the movie is by Dimitri Tiomkin.

Buffalo Girls-American folk song

Buffalo gals won’t you come out tonight
Come out tonight.
Buffalo gals won’t you come out tonight
And dance by the light of the moon.
