Image[edit]

The image given for this song, while not inappropriate, is very far from ideal. I'm not really clear about uploading images and fair use and that sort of thing, but it seems to me that the image on this page would be an ideal choice. Maybe somebody else can do what's necessary to use it? --MQDuck (talk) 01:44, 29 August 2009 (UTC)

"music video"[edit]

If you see the short musical film Fats Waller made, he totally undercuts the lyrics of the song, and it's pretty clear that he is "misbehaving"... AnonMoos (talk) 18:41, 2 January 2012 (UTC)

Melody is in The Jazz Singer from 1927[edit]

The beginning of the song Ain't Misbehavin' is played on piano with bass clarinet in the beginning of the movie The Jazz Singer starring Al Jolson, which came out in 1927 - YouTube link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tl4uSBWYaLg - [1] Check it out on YouTube. The article says the song was released in 1929, two years later. Granted, there aren't any lyrics sung here, so this does not count as the complete song, but perhaps a mention should be made regarding it's inclusion in the film, considering that The Jazz Singer is considered a seminal work, as according to the Wikipedia page [2] Lance Vallis, lancevallis@gmail.com67.171.141.66 (talk) 07:04, 14 October 2013 (UTC)67.171.141.66 (talk) 07:08, 14 October 2013 (UTC)67.171.141.66 (talk) 07:10, 14 October 2013 (UTC)
