How your Songbook Programmed for Pleasure

Everybody enjoys hearing music over the radio or on records or tapes; we even make folk heroes out of unusually gifted interpreters of songs, whether singers or instrumentalists. Yet there is nothing about music so satisfying as the involvement of playing and singing great songs together. Great in the sense of soaring melodies, rhythmic dances, dreamy romantic ballads - all the glittering facets of the musical diamond. This involvement in music is what the Reader's Digest All-Time Favourites Songbook is all about. Here, we give you a unique collection of 97 favourites for endless evenings of fun, relaxation and excitement. And this is what we mean when we say unique: in no other songbook will you find a selection of songs so enticingly programmed, with such easy and adaptable arrangements, with surprising musical twists. You will find they are simple to play and will delight your friends. We are really proud not only of the songs we have selected but of the way we are presenting them to you. And we are sure you will be pleased, too, when you run through the first few of these up-to-the-minute arrangements. Actually, simply by opening it, you will see one reason why the All-Time Favourites Songbook is something special. Rather than being stitched and bound together, the pages are hinged on a spiral binding that allows them to lie flat on a music rack. The result: no need to flatten down pages yourself and no danger of damaging the book's spine. Also, of the 97 selections included, no fewer than 57 have been so organised that they fit completely on either one or two pages, thereby eliminating page turning in the middle of a song. This has been accomplished not by reducing the size of the typeface but by omitting the rarely played introductory verses or forestrains as well as any superfluous harmonic embellishments that might prove difficult for the average performer. On the other hand, the more

experienced performer will probably want to add his own imaginative elaborations. Selecting just the right songs for a well-balanced compendium resulted in a list of 97 songs that constitute virtually an all-time musical hit parade. These are the songs that are almost as meaningful to us as pictures in a family album or pages in a diary. We have danced to them, sung them in schools, on birthdays, at sing-alongs, at family reunions, and at all kinds of social events. There is hardly one here that will fail to stir your memory of some treasured past event. We hope we have also increased your enjoyment of this songbook with the introductory paragraphs you will find with the songs in the book. These are crammed with stories about how a song was born, how it was introduced to the public, what musical and lyrical qualities have given the song its distinction. Some players may want to read them aloud before the group singing gets underway. To make sure that these songs appear in the most useful and enjoyable way possible, the editors have been guided by the concept of pleasure programming. One of the features on this unique and exclusive Reader's Digest approach to music is to group together songs with common chronological' and musical traits. In this book, they fall into six major categories: 1. Down Memory Lane . .. Wonderfully nostalgic numbers which include favourites from before the First World War, the hectic days of the Jazz Age, and the 'protest' years after the Second World War.

2. Melodies /rom the Tuneful Twenties .,. Memorable music and lyrics from the pens of the giants of musical shows: George and Ira Gershwin, Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart, Cole Porter, Noel Coward, Vincent Youmans, Ray Henderson, and Jerome Kern and Oscar Hammerstein.


3. All-time Hits of the Thirties ... Haunting themes from dramatic hits, and hit tunes from the screen's happiest musicals ... Fond recollections of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers dancing, Eddie Cantor singing, and the lovely, lilting voice of British musical comedy star Jessie Matthews.

4. Favourites from the Forties . .. From Second World War hits such as the Beer Barrel Polka (better known as Roll Out The Barrel) to cheerful, optimistic numbers which many of us sang while growing up after the war. 5. Yesterday'S Hits: the Fifties, Sixties and Seventies ... How often a song triggers our memory of a cenain time, a cenain place, a certain person. These lovely melodies are so familiar it seems they were topping the charts just the other day. Can it really be so long ago since their words and runes first entered our lives, and came to sum up for many of us certain magical moments moments which we will treasure forever. 6. Magic of the Movies . .. Songs sung in the floridly romantic musicals of yesterday have never lost their appeal. And they bring back some .;bewitching scenes in screen history - when stars such as Frank Sinatra, Gene Kelly, Bing Crosby, Doris Day and Louis Armstrong sang what became well-loved classics from the cinema.

Pleasure programming, however, does not stop with placing songs in these categories. We provide you here with many more cross-references to help you round out particular moods and occasions. Here you will find nostalgic songs and glad songs; songs for the panicular girl and songs for the particular boy; songs to stan musical panies off with a swing and songs to bring them to a close; and songs for all kinds of group singing from

barbershop-style ensembles to 'choirs'. All the arrangements have been especially created to provide easy-to-play fingering so that the average home musician can perfonn to his best advantage. Many of the pieces, chiefly the older songs, have been updated for the first time through the use of smooth, modern harmonies and intriguing rhythmic effects. Note, too, that each song has been arranged for three instruments: piano, guitar and organ. However, these arrangements can easily be adapted to any treble-clef C instrument, such as accordion, ukulele, recorder, marimba and xylophone. Most of them can also be used for the chord organ. Any guitarist - or would-be guitarist - need only read the special guitar diagrams above the staves to be able to accompany the songs. As for the organist, he should have no trouble finding the proper organ pedal merely by reading the small notes on the bass clef. The songs may also be performed on a keyboard instrument by playing the melody with the right hand and following the chord symbols to improvise a left-hand accompaniment. Piano srudents will probably recognise this as the 'popular piano' method widely used by music teachers today. It is also important to note that, in order to distinguish the melody from other symbols for the right hand, the stem of each melody note goes upward unless it stands alone. A songbook, of course, can simplify the arrangements, but it cannot play them. It can be a teaching aid, but it cannot teach. Nonetheless, everything possible has been done to assure the amateur musician's fullest enjoyment and proficiency. The rest is up to you ... Experienced pianists who have played these arrangements tell us: 'The notes seem to fall right under your fingers - no need for reaching or stretching. ' We hope you will feel the same way.

IF You

WERE

THE ONLY gIRL IN THE WORLD

~~~ Comic George Robey first posed this piece of melodic make-believe at the Alhambra Theatre, in the 1916 London musical The Bing Boys Are Here. The song ticked-over for some 13 years until American crooner Rudy Vallee got a bright idea: he changed its beat from a foxtrot to a waltz and successfully reintroduced it in his film debut, The Vagabond Lover, made in 1929.

Today a song can become a round-the-world hit within. a few weeks, but in 1934 tastes differed radically from country to country. In England, for example, the big hit was a dramatic ballad, If; in the United States the public ear was tuned to light love songs and swing-band rhythms. But by 1951 America's mood had changed and 'big' ballads became the rage. Perry Como remembered If, and recorded it and - after 17 years the song became an 'overnight' best-seller in the United States as well.

Who's Sorry

Written originally for a vaudeville team, Crafts and Haley, this number went on to become one of the top American hits of 1923. It was featured in a Marx Brothers film A Night in Casablanca in 1946; and in the 1950 film Three Little Words - the story of songwriters Kalmar and Ruby - it was sung by Gloria de Haven. About 35 years after it was first recorded, a young rock singer, Connie Francis, was looking for a song to launch her career. Her father remembered this old hit and suggested she record it. By early 1955 she had taken it toNo. 1 in the charts.

One section of this song's lyrics has required updating - the lines referring to a current long-running show on Broadway. In the original 1925 version the show' was Abie's Irish Rose. Mterwards, new lyrics referred to Rodgers'

and Hammerstein's South Pacific. Then came a version that celebrated My Fair Lady. For a later edition the publisher picked the controversial British revue Oh! Calcutta! Manhattan was Rodgers' and Hart's first big hit.

in the Wind Among modem folk song balladeers, no one has made a stronger impact than Bob Dylan, whose Blowin' in the Wind, composed in 1962, practically became the anthem of the civil rights movement in the United States. The sensitive words, however, are equally applicable to any situation involving man's indifference to the basic rights of others. In 1964, Peter, Paul and Mary's recording of the song received awards both as the best performance by a vocal group and as the best folk song recording.

Lover, Come Back

The New Moon, a Hammerstein-Romberg operetta of 1928, was one of the few musicals. ever to close down completely and then, rewritten and restaged, become a standing-room-only attraction on Broadway. Unquestionably, much of the credit must go to the songs that were added, including the yearning Lover, Come Back to Me, sung by the show's prima donna, Evelyn Herbert.

Charleston The dance sensation that best typified the zestful spirit of the 1920s was the high-kicking Charleston, which also happened to be the name of a song. Introduced in the 1923 all-Negro revue Runnin' Wild, it soon became the favourite dance in ballrooms around the world. In the 1950 film Tea/or Two Billy De Wolfe and Patricia Wymore danced and sang the Charleston.

The


For Me and My Gal In 1917, according to hard-up composer Meyer, 'I was writing songs for a living and I needed money, so I wrote this ballad'. Lyricist Edgar Leslie borrowed the title from the last line of the earlier hit, Shine On, Harvest Moon. When first introduced in vaudeville it 'laid an egg', until a hard-working song plugger placed it with such stars as AI Jolson, Sophie Tucker, Eddie Cantor and George Jessel. In 1942 it served as the title song of a film starring Gene Kelly (his first) and Judy Garland, and it became a hit allover again. It is one of the most popular melodies ever written about the joy and excitement of getting married and of anticipating the family to come.

When Day Is Done

Although composer Katcher had written operettas in his native Vienna, and later spent more than ten years in Hollywood, his only lasting work is When Day Is Done. Called Madonna when first published in Vienna in 1924, it received its English title and lyrics years later - and became the signature tune of the pre-war English danceband leader, Ambrose.

English version by B. G. DeSylva Music and original text by Dr. Robert Katcher

In 1930 in America composer Johnny Black sold Paper Doll to a E.B. Marks, for a $100 advance against royalties, but neglected to mention that he himself had copyrighted the song back ii11915. It collected dust in Marks' file until 1942, when the Mills Brothers recorded their hit version. Then someone discovered that the copyright was due to expire and Marks would lose the song unless he could sign up the renewal rights. But Johnny Black was dead and it was necessary to locate his heirs. The trail led to an elderly father and an ex-wife. Both were persuaded to sign, but the ex-wife demanded a bonus - one week in New York for her and a friend as guests of the publisher. The bonus was paid and the song was saved.

Words by George Norton; Music by Ernie Burnett Over the years this tuneful song has become linked with a moving expression of end-of-the-evening feelings. Originally called Melancholy, it was first heard around 1912 at the Dutch Mill in Denver, Colorado, then one of the more elegant hight'spots in the West, and it went on to become a popular vaudeville riumber. During the late 1920s it was frequently featured by Tommy Lyman, an American cabaret singer who began work at midnight and continued to perform into the wee small hours. It was also sung by Priscilla Lane in the 1939 James Cagney gangster film, The Roaring Twenties.

Vaudeville was at the height of its popularity in the Roaring Twenties, and Eddie Cantor one of its top stars. In the 1921 revue The Midnight Rounders the ebullient Cantor style cried out for a novelty number, which would give him a chance to roll his 'saucer' eyes. Cantor's performance of Ma helped keep the show running for two years. In 1958 the song had a new lease of life as a rock 'n' roll number.

ONE ALONE

That stirring vow of fidelity, One Alone, from The Desert Song, is part of a three-way musical discussion called Eastern and Western Love. Representing the 'eastern' points of view one Moroccan tribesman advises treating love as a passing pleasure, while another advocates a 'harem of blossoms' . But the Red Shadow, a Frenchman in disguise, rejects both ideas. He pledges his undying devotion to 'one alone to be my own'. Harry Welchman starred in the 1927 London version, and recently John Hanson has played the Red Shadow in theatres throughout Britain.

----Section 2 · Melodies from the Tuneful Twenties----

The Man I Love The Man I Love had the odd distinction of becoming a recognised standard despite its having been: (1) thrown out, of the Broadway musical for which it had been written (Lady, Be Good in 1924); (2) sung in a show that initially flopped on the road (the 1927 Strike Up the Band); (3) added to and then cut from a third musical (Rosalie, 1928); and (4) rejected when Strike Up the Band was successfully revised in 1930. The reason for the last rejection was ironic: by then

the song had become too well known. In England, this was largely thanks to Lady Louis Mountbatten, who had heard the song in New York. She liked it so much that, on her return to London, she had it played by the Berkeley Square Orchestra, who turned it into a cafe society hit. It was then taken up by various jazz groups - who played it in London and Paris - and American visitors would go home humming the melody and asking bands in New York to play it.

's Wonderful Here lyricist Ira Gershwin's aim was to achieve the amusingly sibilant sound caused by dropping the 'it' from the contraction 'it's', and slurring the remaining's' as part of the following word. The result: 's lovely to play and's fun to sing. Fred Astaire's sister, Adele, first introduced the song in the 1927 musical Funny Face. The song was revived by Twiggy in My One and Only, which opened on Broadway in May 1983.

What Is This Thing Called Love? It was while listening to native chants in Marrakesh, Morocco, that Cole Porter got the inspiration for this dark, brooding melody of despair. Introduced in London by Elsie Carlisle in the 1929 revue Wake Up and Dream, the song became so well known that by the time the show moved to New York, in the following year, audiences greeted it as an old favourite. It is one of the classic songs about the agony of being jilted and left alone.

With a Song in

The appearance of film star Glenn Hunter in the 1929 American musical Spring Is Here presented a problem: he could not sing. So Rodgers and Hart gave With A Song In My Heart to his more vocally gifted 'rival', John Hundley. Almost 20 years later, the BBC adopted the song as the theme tune for Family Favourites, when the record request programme was launched on the air in January 1948.

The mating of Olde English with 1927 slang was accomplished with great style in Rodgers' and Hart's Thou Swell. Surprisingly, when first sung in A Connecticut Yankee during the show's Philadelphia tryout, the song left audiences so cold that the producer wanted it taken out of the score. Richard Rodgers fought to keep it in and was vindicated when it became one of the musical's most admired numbers. Its popularity was ensured when the musical became a success at London's Daly's Theatre in 1929.

The Blue Room ~

Words by Lorenz Hart

Music by Richard Rodgers

This tender ode to domestic tranquillity was first sung in the 1926 Broadway musical The Girl Friend, which came to London and the Palace Theatre in the following year. The key word 'room' is skilfully emphasised in the first and second eight-bar sections: every time it is sung it is preceded by the rhyme falling on 'C' with the word itself raised one tone higher.

A 'dummy lyric' is a temporary set of words put together to help lyricists work out a song's metric form and rhyme scheme. Tea for Two may be a classic, but it still uses the dummy lyric Irving Caesar dashed off hurriedly one night. The cheerful number was added to the 1925 musical comedy No, No, Nanette, which came from Broadway to London's Palace Theatre - when the cast included George Grossmith, Binnie Hale and Joan Barry.

Make Believe Make Believe was one of the immortal melodies heard in Kern's 1927 musical version of Edna Ferber's novel Showboat. Lyricist Oscar Hammerstein recalled: 'Jerome

Words by: Oscar Hammerstein II

played a melody for me and I got some words to fit the, middle part. They were "Couldn't I? Couldn't you? Couldn't we,?" At the moment, though, I had no idea what I and you and we couldn't do. It just seemed to sing. Later, I wrote words up to that section and then away from it. But this is not the ideal way to write a song.'

3ascinating :Rhythm 'Fascinating' is the proper term for this combination of words and music. After receiving the melody from his brother, lyricist Ira Gershwin faced an enormous task: the jagged, syncopated tun~ with its tricky accents hardly lent itself to a boy-girl expression, either amorous or humorous. So he simply hit upon a lyric describing the effects of a nagging, insinuating, fascinating rhythm. Fred and Adele Astaire first sang about it in the musical Lady, Be Good! which opened on Broadway in 1924 and at London's Empire Theatre in 1926 - again with the Astaires.

SMOKE GETS IN YOUR EYES It was 1933, the depths ofthe Depression, and shows were closing up and down along Broadway. But Roberta played on, thanks to this plaintive song, first intended by Jerome Kern as an instrumental interlude to fill in during scene changes. He dusted off a march he had composed some time earlier as a theme for an unproduced radio series, slowed down the tempo and then decided it could use lyrics after all. On opening night, the song brought down the house. Irene Dunne sang it in the 1935 film version to a wistful accompaniment of mandolins.

ISLE OF CAPRI Words by Jimmy Kennedy; Music by Will Grosz

~~~~~i~~~ Romantic and nostalgic, with an amusing tWist at the end, Isle of Capri is a product of the British songwriting team of Will Grosz and Jimmy Kennedy. Guy Lombardo and His Royal Canadians introduced the ballad in the United States in 1934, and Xavier Cugat and his orchestra popularised it further through their nightclub appearances and recordings. But it was the raucous swing version by Wingy Manone in 1935 that brought the song its greatest fame and gave the one-armed trumpeter his first hit recording. Gracie Fields also had a hit with it in Britain.

Nobody expected this song to become a hit, let alone an all-time favourite. Jerome Kern admittedly composed the complex melody for his own satisfaction, but he was certain the public would never hum it. Then the show in which it appeared, Very Warm fur May (1939), was a disaster. Yet AU the Things You Are survived, and appealed enough to Joan Regan and Mario Lanza to record it.

for the violin, Avant de Mounr ('Before Dying'), by the French composer Georges Boulanger. English songwriter Jimmy Kennedy adapted the music to a song format and wrote lyrics which were introduced in England by Vera Lynn. In 1956-7 My Prayer became a best-selling record for the American singing group the Platters.

It took this song some two years before finding a publisher in 1938. American radio stations at that time had a strict ruling against any reference to an alcoholic beverage and here was a lyric dealing with the heady effects of no less than three. But the song became a hit despite the radio ban.

·April in Paris Words by E. Y. Harburg

'Oh, to be in Paris now that April's here!' boomed a nostalgic Monty Woolley at a Manhattan bistro one day in 1932. 'April in Paris,' announced composer Vernon Duke dramatically. 'What a title!' And he promptly composed this lovely song for the revue Walk a Little Faster with the British comedienne Beatrice Lillie.

Words by Howard Dietz

Dancing in the Dark was a product of sheer inspiration. While working on the score for the 1931 Broadway revue The Band Wagon, composer Arthur Schwartz was groping for - in his words 'a dark song, somewhat mystical, yet in slow, even rhythm'. For days nothing would satisfy him. Then one morning he awoke with this melody so fixed in his head that all he had to do was jot down the notes. Bing Crosby and Frank Sinatra made best-selling records of it.

IGeta Kick Out of You

Cole Porter's sophisticated ballad at first appears to fall into the familiar A-A-B-A pattern, with each section consisting of 16 bars. Yet both times the A theme is repeated, only the first six bars remain constant, the rest indulging in some compelling variations. This is particularly true in the final section in which the tones rise higher and higher with the plane's ascent, only to descend as the lyrics express total indifference to the flight. I Get a Kick Out of Yau was first sung in 1934 by Ethel Merman in the musical comedy Anything Goes, written by P.G. Wodehouse and Guy Bolton. It opened at the Palace Theatre in London in 1935, and was successfully revived at the Savoy in 1969.

Words and Music by Cole Porter

~~~~

Just One 0/ Those Things is anything but. It is one of those legendary songs written on the spur of the moment - in fact, overnight. When Cole Porter's musical Jubilee was being prepared for its Broadway opening in 1935, Moss Hart, who wrote the book for the show, suggested to Porter that a strong new song was needed for the second act. The composer agreed, and the next morning he appeared with a sheet of scribbled notes and sang for Hart the comple~e verse and chorus of Just One o/Those Things. There was one word, however, that gave Porter trouble. He spent days poring through dictionaries, but he could not find an adjective to go with 'wings' until a friend suggested a word that had probably never before appeared in a popular song: 'gossamer'.

------Section 4 Favourites from the Forties-----0

!DI'lllever 'alk IIDBe Cole Porter once said that Richard Rodgers' best songs have 'a kind of holiness about them'. He might well have been talking about You'll Never Walk Alone, a musical, emotional, and spiritual high point of Rodgers' and Hammerstein's 1945 show Carousel. Rodgers' wife, Dorothy, has named this as one of her four favourite Rodgers' compositions - the others are Hello Young Lovers, Little Girl Blue and a personal, sentimental favourite, Dear, Dear, the very first love song Rodgers wrote after they were married. Any visitor to Anfield, the home of Liverpool Football Club, will hear their supporters on the Kop singing You'll Never Walk Alone. It was adopted by the club soon after Gerry and the Pacemakers- part of the Mersey sound-had a No.1 hit with it in 1963.

Mona Lisa In 1949 songwriters Jay Livingston and Ray Evans were asked by Paramount to write a 'warning song' for Captain Carey, U.S.A., an Alan Ladd film about the OSS in Italy during the Second World War. Every time the Nazis were in the neighbourhood, a strolling accordionist was to play this melody. Mona Lisa was the song, and it won an Academy Award. It was also a hit record for Nat 'King' Cole.

During the 1930s and 1940s, Charles Trenet, probably France's most popular singer and entertainer next to Maurice Chevalier, was also the most prolific of French songwriters. His surging La Mer, written in 1945, contains many Debussy-like suggestions of Impressionism. Jack Lawrence wrote English lyrics for it in 1947, and in 1960 Bobby Darin's recording of Beyond the Sea sold a million copies.

The last lyrical number is sung in the show by the American hero Tommy Albright, who falls in love with a lass from Brigadoon - and, in a happy ending, remains with his love in the sleeping village. Philip Hanna sang this exhilarating song in 1949 in the highly successful London production at His Majesty's Theatre.

Dh, What aBeautifullarain' No Broadway musical had ever started with a stage empty of people except for one old woman churning butter. But then, until Oklahoma! came along in 1943, no musical had ever started with a song like Oh, What a Beautiful Momin', which the hero, Curly, begins from offstage. Its warmth and sheer delight in the glories of nature on a fine day waltzed each evening's show off to a magical beginning for five years and nine weeks. Hammerstein worked for three weeks on the lyric to create 'an atmosphere of relaxation and tenderness'. Rodgers, on the other hand, dashed off the melody in about ten minutes. No matter; the effect was perfection.

Words and Music by Eddie Seiler, Sol Marcus, Bennie Benjamin and Eddie Durham Bennie Benjamin, one of the four writers of! Don't Want to Set the World on Fire, conceived of the song as a lively number when it was written in 1940. At about the same time, Harlan Leonard's Kansas City Rockets seemed to be filling the void left by Count Basie after the Basie band left Kansas City for the greener pastures of New York. The Rockets recorded the song in 1940, but both the record and the song flopped. For a while it seemed that this musical spitfire would go nowhere. Then The Ink Spots came into the picture. First, they slowed down the tempo. Next, they recorded it in 1941, employing their gentle, laid-back style. Much to Bennie Benjamin's surprise - pleasant surprise, that is - the ballad tempo proved just right, and the song became a classic. Another Benjamin hit of this period was When the Lights Go On Again (All Over the World). He later teamed up with George David Weiss to form one of the most successful collaborations of the late 1940s, producing such winners as Rumours Are Flying and! Don't See Me in Your Eyes Anymore.

South Pacific, Rodgers' and Hammerstein's 1949 musical, was based on some of James Michener's Tales of the South Pacific. The show's hero was a middle-aged French planter, Emile de Becque, played by 57-year-old Metropolitan Opera star Ezio Pinza. It is with Some Encha:nted Evening that de Becque proclaims his love-at-first-sight for US Navy Ensign Nellie Forbush. Nellie at first resists de Becque's impassioned pleas, singing I'm Gonna Wash That Man Right Outa My Hair, but it is not long before she is joyfully singing I'm in Love with a Wonderful Guy. The musical opened in London in 1951 - with Wilbur Evans proclaiming his love to Broadway singing star Mary Martin.

Tenderly American pianist, the late Walter Gross wrote just one immortal hit. Most of the singers he accompaniecl in the 1940s were familiar with Walter's melody, but it remained untitled and unsung until the singer Margaret Whiting introduced him to lyricist Jack Lawrence. Lawrence recalls that Gross was reluctant to accept his title, feeling it sounded like directions to a performer. Today, when someone suggests, play Tenderly, it is this song they have in mind .

Blueberry Hill was the product of three of the more successful hands in Tin Pan Alley - Vincent Rose, who also wrote Avalon, Whispering, and Linger Awhile; Al Lewis, writer of The Breeze, Now's the Time to Fall in Love, and Rose O'Day; and Larry Stock, who composed You're Nobody Till Somebody Loves You and You Won't Be Satisfied. They wrote Blueberry Hill for the cowboy film star Gene Autry to sing in the 1941 film The Singing Hills. But it was Glen Miller's recording with a vocal by Ray Eberle that put the song in the Hit Parade that year. In 1949 it was picked up by Louis Armstrong when he was reviving his jazz career with The All-Stars. Blueberry Hill did it for him then, and even after Fats Domino gave the song a third revival in 1957, Armstrong continued to rely on it as a big vocal and trumpet number until his death in 1971. Elvis Presley also had a hit record with the song.

F-EOF-LE "VU"ILL

Oklahoma! (1943) was the first collaboration of Rodgers and Hammerstein. Besides the title song, Oh, What a Beautiful Mornin' and The Surrey with the Fringe on Top, the team produced People Will Say We're In L(JVe, in which the young lovers, Curly and Laurey, warn each other against any sign of affection. When Oklahoma! opened at London's Drury Lane Theatre in 1947, Curly and Laurey were played by Howard Keel - then known as 'Harold Keel' - and Betty Jane Watson.

I'm Looking Over a Four Leaf Clover Written in 1927, this song was overlooked until 1948, the year bandleader Art Mooney recorded it. When, through a whim, American disc jockey Al Collins decided to play it continuously one afternoon over a Salt Lake City radio station, the event generated enough front-page publicity throughout the United States to boost both the record and sheet-music sales to best-seller status. In the 1949 film Jolson Sings Again - which tells of the entertainer's life after the break-up of his first marriage - it was mimed by Larry Parks to the off-screen voice of Al Jolson.

Autumn Leaves This lovely, mood-inspiring song began as a French poem, Les Feuilles Mortes ('The Dead Leaves'), by Jacques Prevert. It was set to music by Hungarianborn Joseph Kosma and became a favourite among the more sophisticated French cafe singers after the Second World War. Johnny Mercer, one of America's most prolific lyricists, was also a busy recording executive and singer, but he loved the song and agreed to write the English lyrics. Then he became preoccupied with other matters. Reminded of his commitment, he hurriedly scribbled the lyrics in a cab on his way to catch a plane, stopping off to slip them under the publisher's door. The song really hit its stride, however, in 1955 when Roger Williams recorded a piano version of it which sold 21 million copies.

-SectionS· Yesterday's Hits: the Fifties, Sixties and Seventies--

recorded song of 1973 (the recording by Tony Orlando and Dawn sold 5~ million copies alone). Since then, over 400 recordings - most notably, one by the British pop star Tom Jones - have been made of the song which became the American theme of hope during the Iranian hostage crisis of 1979-81.

Does the tale of an ex-convict riding a bus back to his home town after three years in prison seem an improbable subject for a hit song? It does? Well, just add the suspense of learning whether he'll 'find a yellow ribbon tied around the old oak tree a sign that his love has waited for him - and you have got the most popular

Send In the Clowns Words and Music by Stephen Sondheim Stephen Sondheim.'s 1973 musical A Little Night Music, an adaptation of Ingmar Bergman's film Smiles of a Summer Night, deals with a subject more suited to operetta than to the Broadway stage. Yet Sondheim's score is far from the sugary world of Sigmund Romberg or Rudolf Friml, and one song is hauntingly beautiful. Send In the Clowns, sung in the show by Glynis Johns, became an instant classic in the way that songs from musicals used to but seldom do anymore. It is a favourite of many performers, including Judy Collins and Sarah Vaughan.

Gilbert Becaud is among those great European chansonniers (Jacques Brei, Charles Trenet, and Charles Aznavour are others) whose careers as songwriters and as singers have been happily in harness. Becaud has written more than 700 songs and an opera, L'Opera d'Aran, that ran for 100 performances in Paris, an achievement more to be expected of a musical comedy than an opera. In 1962 Becaud wrote and introduced a song called Et Maintenant. When Jane Morgan, an American singer who had spent several years in Paris, returned to the United States that year, she brought with her Et Maintenant which, with English lyrics by Carl Sigman, became What Now My Love. The song helped to reintroduce Miss Morgan to American audiences, establishing her as a bilingual singer (she sang both French and English versions),,'and provided first, Herb Alpert and The Tijuana Brass, then Sonny and Cher, with one of their most successful hits.

Words and Music by ErilO Rapee and Lew Pollack A sweet-scented breath of loveliness from the 1920s, Charmaine was written by Erno Rapee and Lew Pollack as accompaniment for the classic silent film What Price Glory, starring Victor McLaglen, Edmund Lowe and Dolores Del Rio. Theatre pit orchestras, mighty Wurlitzer organs and countless honky-tonk pianos played it wherever the film was shown, while contented audiences hummed and whistled it. Later, during the Second World War, Harry James and his orchestra played it in the film Two Girls and a Sailor, and in 1951 it rose to even greater heights thanks to the shimmering strings of Mantovani's best-selling record.

Getting 10 Know lbu By 1951, when Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein wrote The King and I, they had acquired that songwriters' treasure trove, a 'trunk' full of discarded songs that could be pulled out to cover emergencies. One of these songs was a melody Rodgers had;,written for South Pacific that had been replaced by Younger Than Springtime. During the tryout of The King and I, Gertrude Lawrence, who played the 'I', governess Anna Leonowens, felt

that the first act could use a song involving herself and the king's children. Hammerstein wrote new lyrics to order, Getting To Know You. Rodgers had only to reach into his 'trunk' and pull out this melody. The King and I opened on Broadway in 1951 with Yul Brynner as ~e king. Brynner has since made the part his own, appearing in the 1956 film version and also in a stage revival at the London Palladium in 1979.

Put On a Happy Face

~

Bi~

1%0 Broadway musical Bye Bye made stars of Dick Van Dyke, Chita Rivera and Paul Lynde, while it good-heartedly spoofed the whole rock-and-roll era and the cult of Youth for Youth's Sake. The musical opened in London a year later, with Marty Wilde as the rock star who is conscripted into the US army.

once a most ill-tempered man who was persuaded by his neighbours to wear a mask with a smile on it. He wore the mask for so long that when it accidentally broke, the townspeople discovered that the man was smiling all by himself. That same message, more or less, is the good advice of Put On a Happy Face, a song from the frantically paced

Puff (The Magic Dragon) Peter Yarrow, of Peter, Paul and Mary, shares one-half the credit for writing this gossamer fable and one-third for making it one of the musical delights of 1963. 'Puff' remains a special favourite of children, who love following the antics of Puff anq. Jackie Paper - and their elders delight in seeking hidden meanings in the couple's fantastic adventures.

Together they would travel on a boat with billowed sail. Jackie kept a lookout perched on Puff's gigantic tail, Noble kings and princes would bow whene'er they came, Pirate ships would low'r their flag when Puff roared out his name. Oh! (Chorus) A dragon lives forever but not so little boys, Painted wings and giant rings make way for other toys. One gray night it happened, Jackie Paper came no more And Puff that mighty dragon, . he ceased his fearless roar. Oh! (Chorus)

His head was bent in sorrow, green scales fell like rain. Puff no longer went to play along the cherry lane. Without his lifelong friend, Puff could not be brave So Puff that mighty dragon, ' sadly slipped into his cave. Oh! (Chorus)

If Ever I Would Leave (Jou Words by Alan Jay Lerner; Music by Frederick Loewe Camelot is Alan Jay Lerner's and Frederick Loewe's 1960 musical retelling of the legendary King Arthur-Queen Guinevere-Sir Lancelot romantic triangle. In the original production, it was Julie Andrews who had to make the difficult choice between Richard Burton, as Arthur, and Robert Goulet, as Lancelot - though her final choice of Lancelot seemed almost inevitable after he sang the ardent and poetic If Ever I Would Leave You. Barry Kent sang the number when the show opened in 1964 in London's Drury Lane Theatre, and Robert Meadmore sang it at the Apollo Victoria when Camelol returned to London in 1982.

In the midst of all the 'situation' songs in My Fair Lady, Freddy Eynsford-Hill's straightforward love ballad to Eliza Doolitde stands out in romantic relief. The song is one of the lyricist Alan Jay Lerner's favourites, although, according to him, composer Frederick Loewe hated it, feeling it held up the

action. When My Fair Lady was on its pre-Broadway tryout tour, audiences tended to agree with Loewe. But when Lerner replaced the original middle section of the song with a verse that was more explanatory, he changed an out-of-town flop into a New York - and later international- showstopper.

-------Section 6 Magic of the Movies------°

For the only film score that they wrote together - State Fair, in 1945 - Rodgers and Hammerstein had to come up with a song for the heroine, Margy (Jeanne Crain), who is about to go to the fair but has the blues for no apparent reason. Lyricist Hammerstein decided that her problem was spring fever. His problem was that

state fairs are held in the autumn, not in ~e spring. His solution: a lyric in which Margy sings that, although it is autumn, her feelings tell her it might as well be spring. Set to music in less than an hour by Rodgers, It Might As Well Be Spring won the Oscar for Best Film Song of 1945 and became a 'standard'.

Words by Dorothy Fields and Jimmy McHugh Music by Jerome Kern Irene Dunne introduced Lovely to Look At in the 1935 film version of Roberta, which 'also featured Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. Jerome Kern, who had originally written Roberta for Broadway, provided the melody, and the experienced songwriting team of Dorothy Fields and Jimmy McHugh supplied the words. When Your Hit Parade was inaugurated on American radio in April 1935, Lovely to Look At was named the first No.1 hit song in the nation. It was such a success that when a second version of Roberta - starring Kathryn Grayson and Howard Keel- was filmed in 1952, the producers changed the title of the picture to ... Lovely to Look At.

Words and Music by Cole Porter High Society, the 1956 film of Philip Barry's play The Philadelphia Story, about romance among the upper crust, had a score by Cole Porter, with Grace Kelly, Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra and Louis Armstrong to sing it. True Love, a duet for Bing and the future Princess of Monaco, was named after a boat that the two characters had once owned. Cole Porter preferred other songs in his score - such as You're S ensational- and was dismayed when True Love was nominated for an Academy Award. To Porter's relief, it lost to Que Sera, Sera, one of Doris Day's most enduring hits.

Theme from

The phenomenal success of Erich Segal's Love Story, both as a book and as a film, demonstrated that there is still a place in the world for oldfashioned romance and sentiment. When the film starring Ryan O'Neal and Ali MacGraw - opened in 1970, the almost Mozartean theme music became the biggest record-seller of the year.

In 1937 Lorenz Hart used the adjective 'funny' to develop My Funny Valentine, a song that, in much the same way as Ira Gershwin's earlier Funny Face, catalogued the appealing charms of a face that might easily be dismissed as plain. The song was one of Hart's most touching lyrics, underlined by the warmth of Richard Rodgers' melody. But because of its unusually demanding range it was a difficult song to sing. Sung by Mitzi Green in Babes in Arms, the show for which Rodgers and Hart wrote it, its story might have ended right there. But two years later Judy Garland sang it so effectively in the film version of the musical that it became one of the most requested numbers in her repertoire.

Love IsHere to Stay is the last song George Gershwin wrote. He was working on it for the score of the film The Goldwyn Follies when he died in 1937 at the age of only 38. Vernon Duke, composer of April in Paris, was asked to complete the melody, but all he had to work with was a 20-bar sheet that indicated only part of it. Fortunately , Duke was able to reconstruct the tune with the help of pianist Oscar Levant, a close friend of Gershwin, who remembered the harmonie~ of the song from hearing Gershwin play it at parties. In 1951 Gene Kelly sang it to Leslie Caron in the Academy Award winning film, An American in Paris.

Lulu's Back in Town Minus chorus girls or Busby Berkeley dance spectacles, the 1935 film musical Broadway Gondolier had only a slender plot line about a radio crooner (Dick Powell) upon which to string along a collection of engaging tunes. This one tells of the impecunious Mr Otis happily preening for his date with the longabsent Lulu, for whom he will happily renounce all other women.

Too Marvellous for Words

Could the dictionary be at a loss for words? The song's thoroughly smitten lover thinks sO'after searching in vain to find the magical adjectives to describe his beloved. The number came from an otherwise forgettable 1937 film called Ready, Willing and Able, starring Al Jolson's first wife, Ruby Keeler.

With the stars twinkling above and the island of Manhattan aglow in the distance, a poor young songwriter and his girl are seen snuggling against the rail of the Staten Island ferry. The hero is oblivious to everything but the heroine - a condition he expresses in song. And when he is finished, what does the misty-eyed girl say? 'Gee, Jimmy, that was swell.' It all took place on the silver screen in 1934: Dick Powell and Ruby Keeler in Dames.

Spurred by Broadway's hit musical western Annie Get Your Gun, Hollywood staked its own claim to similar sagebrush territory in Calamity Jane. With Doris Day as the sharp-shooting heroine and Howard Keel as 'Wild Bill' Hickok, the saga had a variety of explosive numbers, but only one romantic piece, Secret Love. The ballad became a 1953 Oscar winner, a top-selling Doris Day recording and the most durable item in the score.

ALL OFME

For Seymour Simons, All Of Me was just one of many song hits that he wrote while leading his own orchestra in Detroit in the early 1930s. But for Gerald Marks, his collaborator, it was the start of a songwriting career that was to earn him awards from all over the United States. Belle Baker introduced the song on radio in 1931, and it was featured the next year in the Joan Bennett film Careless Lady. In 1952 Frank Sinatra made it a hit again in the film Meet Danny Wilson. For a while, jazzmen tended to swing the tune and up the tempo, but in 1980 Willie Nelson revived the song in its original ballad style.

Jeepers Creepers In Jeepers Creepers wordsmith Johnny Mercer put together a lyric based primarily on a collection of teenage slang of the 1930s, including the rhyming of 'jeepers creepers' with 'peepers' and 'weepers', and 'heaters' with 'cheaters'. This swinging tribute to a young lady's remarkable eyes was written especially for Louis Armstrong, whose mellow growl presented it first on the screen in a now forgotten film - Going Places (1939) - and then on a best-selling record. He kept it in his repertoire for the rest of his long career.
