Music Review: On Your Toes: Musical Soundtrack (1953)

If you want to hear the sounds of the 50s this is a great venue.  The story of this musical is the vaudeville parents of a young man insist he get educated, and so he becomes a music professor, but the hope of getting his musical “Slaughter on Tenth Street” on stage.  This presentation has some good music.  I especially like The 3 B’s.  This is the music professor teaching his class as the tell everyone that the 3 B’s of music are Brahms, Beethoven and Bach.  There are some nice love songs here as well.   “It’s Got to be Love” is of this theme.  This music has a bit of a jazzy feel, but maybe that is just the 50s.
