Thanks for the Memory

Thanks for the Memory is the name of the Academy Award winning song made popular by Bob Hope. If you're looking for lyrics and information on the phrase, memories, the Fall Out Boy song, or Frank Sinatra visit the Thanks for the Memories Main Page.

This song is from the movie The Big Broadcast of 1938. The Big Broadcast movies were a series of movies made by Paramount Pictures that were musical anthologies--a collection of musical numbers grouped together by a loose story.

The song lyrics were written by Leo Robin and was composed by Ralph Rainger. In the movie, The Big Broadcast, Bob Hope sang vocals with Shirley Ross. The song won an Oscar for Best Original Song.
In the move, the Bob Hope and Shirley Ross' play characters who were divorced and then have other marriages that failed. The two meet again and sing this song about their failed past. It's a very touching song with very tender performances by both Ross and Hope.

The song has been covered by numerous artists most notably an extended version by Frank Sinatra (in 1981 on his She Shot Me Down album) and Bing Crosby (on his 1956 album, Songs I Wish I Had Sung the First Time Around). This song, however, remained a a signature tune for Bob Hope with lyrics adopted to suit each show.
