A slightly ruff result for Gershwin's Walking The Dog — dropping three places this year

A jazzy saunter around Manhattan, with a swinging rhythm and a cheeky clarinet solo — it can only be Gershwin's lighthearted Walking the Dog. It was written for the 1937 film Shall We Dance, where it accompanies a sequence of walking a dog on a luxury liner.

Shall We Dance (1938), for which Gershwin wrote this number.
