Welcome to Retroville! It's 1946!
In 1946, Johnny Mercer's Personality skyrocketed to the number one position. With words by Johnny Burke and music by Jimmy Van Heusen, the song would also be released by Bing Crosby and Dinah Shore and take the ninth and tenth positions on the charts, respectively. The song also appeared in The Road to Utopia sung by Dorothy Lamour.

The Lyrics:

When Madam Pompadour was on a ballroom floor
Said all the gentlemen "Obviously,"
"The madam has the cutest personality"

And think of all the books about Du Barry's looks
What was it made her the toast of Paree?
She had a well-developed personality

What did Romeo see in Juliet?
Or Pierrot in Pierrette?
Or Jupiter in Juno?
You know!

And when Salome danced and had the boys entranced
No doubt it must have been easy to see
That she knew how to use her personality

A girl can learn to spell and take dictation well
And never sit on the boss's left knee
Unless she's got a perfect personality

A girl can get somewhere in spite of stringy hair
Or even just a bit bowed at the knee
If she can show a faultless personality

Why are certain girls offered certain things
Like sable coats and wedding rings?
By men who wear their spats right?
That's right!

So don'tcha say "I'm smart and have the kindest heart"
Or "what a wonderful sister I'd be"

Just tell me how you like my
Personality.
Baby, you've got the cutest personality!
