A Woody Allen musical moment — well, two

Yesterday was Woody Allen’s 75th birthday, and a mildly belated tribute seems in order. Though he’s fallen off a bit as of late, seeming making two weak movies for every good one, this is the man who brought us “Annie Hall” and “Manhattan” and “Hannah and Her Sisters” and “Crimes and Misdemeanors” and “Zelig” and all those early funny ones and my own personal favorite, “Everyone Says I Love You,” one of the sweetest screen musicals ever made. Here’s “Makin’ Whoopee,” from that film; sung rather differently from how Michelle Pfeiffer delivered it in “The Fabulous Baker Boys,” but a joy from start to finish (and yes, that’s a 1996-era Drew Barrymore and Edward Norton at the end).

And here’s Woody himself, quietly yet tunefully opening his heart with “I’m Thru With Love.”
