Your Anti-Anxiety Playlist: Fred Astaire

TOM GJELTEN, HOST:

Time now for another selection from our no-stress playlist, our regular feature where you share the songs that bring you some Zen during these uncertain times. We appreciate all your suggestions. Today's choice comes from Twitter user Karen Ketchiver (ph). It's a song that may make you want to put on your dancing shoes and tuxedo. Here's Fred Astaire with "Let's Face The Music And Dance."

(SOUNDBITE OF SONG, "LET'S FACE THE MUSIC AND DANCE")

FRED ASTAIRE: (Singing) There may be trouble ahead, but while there's moonlight and music and love and romance, lets face the music and dance. Before the fiddlers have fled, before they ask us to pay the bill and while we still have the chance, let's face the music and dance.

GJELTEN: Fred Astaire singing Irving Berlin's "Let's Face The Music And Dance." You can keep adding to our playlist if you've got a song that helps you relieve stress. Tweet us at @npratc and use the hashtag #nostressplaylist.

ASTAIRE: (Singing) So while there's moonlight and music and love and romance, lets face the music and dance, dance. Let's face the music and dance. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
