Busby Berkeley Dreams

Theme song of my life? I might have to go with Busby Berkeley Dreams. There's just something so ephemeral and beautiful about this little song, you'd swear you heard it before in a dream or another life. 
I first heard it at Intermezzo Cafe, a salad bar in Berkeley, California (which by the way has nothing to do with the title or content of the song). I was so taken with it that I asked the girl at the counter who sang it, which was the first time I'd heard of Magnetic Fields. This video mixes in some black-and-white footage from real Busby Berkeley-choreographed production numbers.
