Dorothy Fields vs. Bruno Mars

Which is the better song, and why?  1936 vs 2010...

Be sure to enjoy this scene from the classic movie Swing Time (in which the song debuted, 1936):  let's talk about how it "reinterprets" the song in both a comic and a profound way....   Features 2 of the most beloved actors and dancers in movie history, Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers.  Composers and lyricists (music and words) loved Astaire as a singer too, even though he didn't have the greatest voice in the world.  The reason why?  Because "you could understand the words" when he sang, and his interpretations of the songs were always intelligent, both musically and regarding the song's story.
