"My Heart Belongs to Daddy"

"My Heart Belongs to Daddy" - song written Cole Porter for a musical 1938 of the year "Leave It to Me!" It was originally performed by Mary Martin, who played Dolly Winslow, the young "protege" of a wealthy newspaper publisher. Marilyn performed this song in the movie "Let's Make Love" 1960 of the year:

The introduction has been completely changed: Monroe introduces herself as "Lolita" who is not allowed to "play with the boys". A verse was also added in which she tells the boy to "make a fine enchilada".


Another popular song written Irving Berlin in 1924 year (almost a hundred years ago!) In the same year, popular recordings of this song made Al Jolson, Blossom Seely, Paul Whiteman and the Brox Sisters. However, today this composition is best known in the performance Marilyn Monroe in the movie "There is no better business than show business":

"Runnin' Wild"

Monroe's version has become a classic ... She sounded in the film "Only Girls in Jazz":

"After You Get What You Want You Don't Want It"

“After you get what you want, you don't want it.
If I gave you the moon, you would soon tire of it.
You're like a child, you want what you want, when you want.
But after they show you what you want, you are not satisfied.
You are always wanting and wanting something…”

"Heat wave"

Another wonderful musical number from the magnificent Monroe…

"Let's Make Love"

"Let's Make Love" - American musical comedy 1960 of the year! Unfortunately, this will be Monroe's last performance in a musical film...

"When Love Goes Wrong"

“When everything goes wrong in love,
The men run away
And women are getting bold ... "

"I Wanna Be Loved By You"

Originally written for the musical Good Boy 1928 of the year, Monroe made this song one of her signature tunes ... The composition in her performance adorned "Only Girls in Jazz" (1959), one of the most famous American films of all time!

"Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend"

Over the years, this number has spawned thousands of parodies, however ... no one will perform it the way she did Marilyn Monroe!

Happy Birthday Mr. President"

This song was performed Monroe May 19, 1962 of the year in celebration of the 45th anniversary John Kennedy (10 days before the actual date). Marilyn sang the lyrics in a very soulful voice, adding as her name Kennedy "Mr. President".

After being presented with a huge birthday cake, Kennedy went on stage and joked about the version of the song Monroeby saying:

“Now I can retire from politics after such a sweet “Happy Birthday”!”

Then he, most likely, did not know how prophetic his words would turn out ... As for Monroe, the execution Happy Birthday Mr. President" was one of her last major public appearances before her death August 4, 1962 of the year…
