"They're Either Too Young or Too Old," 'Thank Your Lucky Stars' (1943)
Nominee: Arthur Schwartz & Frank Loesser (sung by Bette Davis)
While there is a lot of nostalgia associated with films for the '30s and '40s, all the rose-tinting and fond memories in the world can't hide the fact that Bette Davis cannot sing. The song is out of her range and she is swooping and swallowing to hit the notes. But more than that, the lyrical content of this light-hearted ditty is terribly disturbing. The reason all the men she meets are too young or too old for her? They're all getting blown up overseas while WWII rages.
