To the nth degree unassuming turn-about his singing abilities Ч he over and over again claimed that he couldn't pipe Ч Astaire introduced some of the most distinguished songs from the Monstrous American Songbook in distinct Cole Superintendent's: "Dark and Day" in Gay Separation (1932) Irving Berlin's "Isn't This a Beauteous Day?" "Cheek to Cheek" and "Top Hat Ivory Tie and Tails" in Top Hat (1935) "Let's Mush the Music and Sashay" in Follow the Speedy (1936) and "Interchange Partners" in Contented (1938). He first presented Jerome Kern's "The Way You Look Tonight" in Wave Time (1936) the Gershwins' "They Can't Take That Away From Me" in Shall We Trip the light fantastic (1937) "A Foggy Day" and "Courteous Labour if You Can Get it" in A Damsel in Angst (1937) Johnny Mercer's "One for My Toddler" from The Sky's the Limitation (1943) and "Something's Gotta Synergy" from Daddy S heart out Legs (1955) and Harry Warren and Arthur Freed's "This Heart of Lode" from Ziegfeld Follies (1946).
Astaire also introduced a digit of tune classics via air duets with his partners. For sample with his sister Adele he introduced the Gershwins' "I'll Assemble a Stairway to Avalon" from Halt Flirting (1923) "Fascinating Rhythmic pattern" in Lady Be Good (1924) "Ridiculous Kisser" in Comic Kisser (1927) and in duets with Ginger Rogers he presented Irving Berlin's "I'm Putting all My Eggs in One Basket" in Follow the Rapid (1936) Jerome Kern's "Sort out Yourself Up" and "A Amercement Dalliance" in Backwards and forwards Time (1936) along with The Gershwins' "Let's Shout The Unbroken Article Off" from Shall We Caper (1937).

Although he haunted a lightweight utterance he was admired for his lyricism vocabulary and the refinement and politesse so prized in his dancing seemed to be reflected in his singing a volume for union which led Burton Lane to retail him as "The existence's greatest lilting artiste."[19]:21 Irving Berlin considered Astaire the commensurate of any Archaic spear interpreter of his songs - "as good as Jolson Crosby or Sinatra not of course because of his words but for his launch of projecting a number".[2] Jerome Kern considered him the chief virile interpreter of his songs[19]:21 and Cole Concierge and Johnny Mercer also admired his solitary behaviour of their toil. And while George Gershwin was rather disparaging of Astaire's singing abilities he wrote myriad of his most significant songs for him.[19]:123 128 In his heyday Astaire was referenced in lyrics of songwriters Cole Concierge Lorenz Hart and Eric Maschwitz and continues to vivify in songwriters.
Astaire was a songwriter of message himself with "I'm Erection Up to an Hideous Letdown" - written with lyricist Johnny Mercer - reaching digit 4 in the Hit Ge of 1936.
