Good Mornin’, Good Mornin’, John Sings The Whole Night Through

I don’t know how many of you are familiar with the song “Good Mornin” from the movie “Singing In The Rain” (You can see and hear it here [1]), but John Kerr usually finishes his show with the first bit of the song, as it is very appropriate for his show.

Good mornin’
Good mornin’
We’ve talked the whole night through
Good mornin’
Good mornin’ to you

Good mornin’
Good mornin’
It’s great to stay up late
Good mornin’
Good mornin’ to you

Anyway, John plays this at the end of his show at 5:59am. Often I set my alarm so that if I do doze off or deliberately go to sleep, I can wake up at 5:59 in time to hear John sign off and play “Good Mornin”. Yesterday however my alarm was set to 6am, and I dozed off at about 4:30am. The interesting thing is that, as I still had the radio on, I partially heard the song.

I think my body is now fairly used to the idea of waking at 5:59 on weekends and seems to go into a lighter sleep around that time, I remember hearing a bit of the song, but it seemed to start a dream. The dream was short, but it contained John playing “Good Mornin Karaoke” with the listeners for an entire show, with John singing the song as well. The dream ended abruptly when my alarm went off at 6am, and unfortunately I have no recollection of how good John’s singing was.

I wonder how the ratings would fare if John had an entire morning of “Good Mornin Karaoke”?

Does this song feature in a certain scene in A Clockwork Orange?

I suspect John could sing as well or if not better than Gene Kelly.
