Facts about

The title song, "With A Song In My Heart", is from the 1929 Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart Broadway musical. "Spring Is Here". It later appeared in the film version, Yours Sincerely, sung by Lanny Ross. It was sung by Donald O'Connor and Susanna Foster in This Is the Life, by Perry Como in Words and Music, by Doris Day in in the finale of Young Man with a Horn and by Dennis Morgan and Lucille Norman in Painting the Clouds with Sunshine.
In 1952, there was not a soundtrack album released. For a replacement, Jane Froman rerecorded most of the film score at Capitol Records, resulting in a 10-inch LP which topped the "Billboard" album chart. When Capitol expanded the LP into a 12-inch disc in 1955, two standards from the movie were added: "That Old Feeling" (music and lyrics by Sammy Fain and Lew Brown), and "I'm Through with Love" (music by Matty Malneck and Fud Livingston, lyrics by Gus Kahn). Ultimately, Jane Froman recorded several versions of the Rodgers and Hart title song: the voice-over renditions in three film scenes, the finale of her studio album, and a single with a different arrangement, done at a Capitol session which also produced the flip side, another remade ballad from the movie and the LP, Jane's "Billboard"-placing "I'll Walk Alone" (music by Jule Styne, lyrics by Sammy Cahn).
"Lux Radio Theater" broadcast a 60 minute radio adaptation of the movie onFebraury 9, 1953 with Susan Hayward, Thelma Ritter and David Wayne reprising their film roles.
