The song "Accentuate the Positive", incidentally, was nominated
for the Academy Award for music in 1945 (it lost to the Rodgers &
Hammerstein tune "Might as Well Be Spring", from the movie
State Fair). "Accentuate the Positive" had lyrics by
Johnny Mercer, and music by Harold Arlen, and was sung by Bing
Crosby in the 1944 movie Here Come the Waves;.
My source on the above information:
Awards for music, 1940s
You got to accentuate the positive,
eliminate the negative,
and don't mess with Mister Inbetween.
