There is this scene from A Star is Born with Judy Garland where she sings "The Man That Got Away" that is the pinnacle of songbird with session musician casual backstage jam and is full of sadness and longing and triumph that I am totally in love with and watch over and over when I should really be going to bed. Also, most of the things I fall in love with tend to remind me that I am, in fact, a gay man.

that is the first scene ever done where they do the song in one take. the camera never leaves her, and she sings that song live in every take. its an amazing scene, and the fag in me has watched it over and over again too. like the beatnick scene in funnyface with fred astaire. amazing. like you. miss you.

I watched that part in funnyface endlessly too! Both of those have innovation out the wazoo that impresses me, but it's just this innate instinct for performance they have that really gives me goosebumps. You know that moment where Judy's voice just soars? Blows me away every time.
Much like my feelings for you really(:
