Puttin' On the Ritz" is a song written by Irving Berlin. He wrote it in May 1927 and first published it on December 2, 1929. It was registered as an unpublished song August 24, 1927 and again on July 27, 1928. It was introduced by Harry Richman and chorus in the musical film Puttin' On the Ritz (1930). According to The Complete Lyrics of Irving Berlin, this was the first song in film to be sung by an interracial ensemble
The expression "Puttin' On The Ritz" means to dress fashionably. The saying comes from the upscale Ritz-Carlton hotel company. Born in Jakarta, Indonesia to Dutch parents on July 21, 1955, Taco Ockerse (yes, it's his real name) was raised in Germany, where he studied dance and theater. He made a name for himself on the European supper-club circuit by dressing in formal attire and performing dance versions of American standards. He played the role of "Chico" in a Marx Brothers stage show in Germany. Taco's follow-up album was also named after an Irving Berlin song he covered, "Let's Face the Music and Dance. He also did Berlin's "Cheek to Cheek. The year after this song was released, a cheesy TV show appeared called Puttin' On The Hits. In the show, a forebear to shows like Lip Sync Battle, contestants would lip-synch for prizes. It could only have happened in the '80s.
Produced by David Parker. Puttin’ on the Ritz Lyrics. If you're blue and you don't know where to go to Why don't you go where fashion sits Puttin' on the ritz. Different types who wear a day coat Pants with stripes And cutaway coat, perfect fits Puttin' on the ritz. Dressed up like a million dollar trouper Trying hard to look like Gary Cooper (super duper). Come let's mix where Rockefellers walk with sticks Or "umberellas" in their mitts Puttin' on the ritz. Have you seen the well-to-do up and down Park.
