Alice Faye recorded a commercial version of the enduring "I Feel a Song Coming On" (music by Jimmy McHugh, lyrics by Dorothy Fields and George Oppenheimer), a tune which Alice shared in the film with Frances Langford and Patsy Kelly. The American Record Company decided not to issue Miss Faye's rendition, and eventually, the masters were disposed of. Another unreleased effort, a remake of Miss Faye's solo in the picture, "Speaking Confidentially" (note: Mr. Oppenheimer received no writing credit here) was spared from junking and now can be heard on two Alice Faye CD collections: "The Complete ARC & Brunswick Sides" from Sony, and "You'll Never Know" from Living Era.

Alice Faye, Frances Langford and Patsy Kelly lose their jobs and can't afford to pay the rent. They enter an amateur contest at a local radio station as a singing trio, but lose to a big band lead by George Raft when Langford passes out mid-song due to lack of food. Raft asks them to join his band, and they become famous, which throws obstacles in the way of a romance between Raft and Langford. An engaging enough little trifle which is largely an excuse to include a lot of musical numbers, the highlight of which is a lady doing a song as a chicken.
