Song: Exactly Like You

Written by Dorothy Fields, James McHugh

Pairing classically trained musician Jimmy McHugh with Dorothy Fields, child of vaudeville star Lew Fields, resulted in one of the most dynamic songwriting teams of all time. EXACTLY LIKE YOU, written for the Broadway musical International Revue, combined a memorable melody with a universally sentimental lyric that blossomed into one of the biggest hits of 1930.
