Cheek to cheek

From Top Hat

Heaven, I'm in Heaven, And my heart beats so that I can hardly speak; And I seem to find the happiness I seek When we're out together dancing, cheek to cheek. Heaven, I'm in Heaven, And the cares that hang around me thro' the week Seem to vanish like a gambler's lucky streak When we're out together dancing, cheek to cheek. Oh! I love to climb a mountain, And to reach the highest peak, But it doesn't thrill me half as much As dancing cheek to cheek. Oh! I love to go out fishing In a river or a creek, But I don't enjoy it half as much As dancing cheek to cheek. Dance with me I want my arm about you; The charm about you Will carry me thro' to Heaven I'm in Heaven, and my heart beats so that I can hardly speak; And I seem to find the happiness I seek When we're out together dancing cheek to cheek.

(Irving Berlin)

Lots of cover version of this, I prefer the Fred & Ginger way. And it fits so well on me, as I used to be an avid climber and downhill skier, now completely lost in the tango.
