The Philadelphia Story (1940) dir. George Cukor
Response songs were a popular phenomenon (especially throughout the fifties) within country music. These songs were often recorded by women in response to men’s songs, and at times, can be seen as outcries from women at a time when men so strongly dominated not only the music world, but every other area of life.
I just discovered one of the most fun response songs I’ve yet to encounter: Kitty Wells’ response to Hank Williams’ “Cold, Cold Heart.” Williams released his song in 1951, and of course it’d become one of his most successful numbers. Wells released her response in 1953, in all likelihood hoping to coast on the popularity of “Cold, Cold Heart,” but her song seems to have made little more than a patter.
You can check out other cool response songs with this list I put together here.

" Remember when you gave that string quintet to Schubert and he presented it as his own,"
" Yeah, but I asked him to do that. I only give him the adagio."
The Stuttgart scene in Avengers featured Schubert. When I first saw this in OLLA I got excited thinking it was a weird meta-reference. (But the Avengers music was a quartet, not a quintet.)
