  • The first song is "You Made Me Love You" originally sung by Al Jolson. The music was written by James V. Monaco, the lyrics by Joseph McCarthy and published in 1913. It was introduced in the Broadway revue The Honeymoon Express. The additional lyrics were added by Roger Edens for Judy Garland. Judy sang the song to Clark Gable at a birthday party thrown for him by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. MGM executives were so charmed by her rendition that she and the song were added to the film Broadway Melody of 1938. Garland recorded the "Gable" version on September 24, 1937. MGM released the song as a b-side in 1939, opposite Garland's recording of "Over the Rainbow."
