Today, Sam Phillips puts the spotlight on some of her favorite film and music.

Steps on steps: Bill “Bojangles” Robinson! I started taking tap dance lessons when I was three and stopped at 14 when I started writing songs. I learned music through movement and listening. My ear was, and still is, much quicker than my ability to read music. I think the great Mr. Robinson is making beautiful music with his feet here—the envy of any drummer.
