Easter Parade (song)


Easter Parade (song)

"Easter Parade" is a popular song that was written by Irving Berlin and was published in 1933. The lyrics describe the singer's involvement in an American cultural event called the Easter parade.

The song was introduced by Marilyn Miller and Clifton Webb in the Broadway musical revue "As Thousands Cheer" (1933), in which musical numbers were strung together on the thematic thread of newspaper headlines. It was repeated in "Holiday Inn" (1942), which featured an Irving Berlin song about each major holiday. ["Holiday Inn" introduced "(I'm Dreaming of a) White Christmas"] In 1948, it was featured in the musical film of the same title, which was constructed around it. It has become a standard.
