... we rarely post parodies but there's one scene in When Harry Met Sally that has been parodied so many times that we almost feel duty bound to include one here and who can resist talking dogs?

... the soundtrack you hear while watching the movie is not the same soundtrack that is on the best selling album When Harry Met Sally: Music from the Motion Picture. The romantic old standard love songs are sung by artists such as Frank Sinatra, Ray Charles and Ella Fitzgerald in the movie. When the album was released all the songs were sung by Harry Connick Jr. Either way it's beautiful music with lyrics that complement the story. Here's the lyrics to Don't Get Around Much anymore.

    Don't Get Around Anymore (Track 6)

    Missed the Saturday dance
    Heard they crowded the floor
    Couldn't bear it without you
    Don't get around much anymore

    Thought I'd visit the club
    Got as far as the door
    They'd have asked me about you
    Don't get around much anymore

    Darling, I guess my mind's more at ease
    But nevertheless, why stir up memories

    Been invited on dates
    Might have gone but what for
    Awfully different without you
    Don't get around much anymore

If you go there you will see a sign memorializing the deli's movie moment

The Deli has a very entertaining website. Instead of saying skip the intro they say "cut the drama - let me in already." We're thinking of ordering either a Katz's deli ladies nightshirt or maybe a salami.
