Beat Out Dat Rhythm on a Drum
Lyrics By Oscar Hammerstein II Music By Georges Bizet
At Billy Pastor’s Café, Frankie leads the crowd in a spirited dance.
This lively number, using the music from “Gypsy Song” in Bizet’s opera, is a rare moment of joy in the otherwise tragic Carmen Jones. Introduced by Jessica Russell in the original Broadway production, the song was sung by Pearl Bailey in the film adaptation.
