A-1 A Cottage For Sale; 1930-Larry Conley & Willard Robison.  Just about everybody recorded this pretty song...even Julie London...only she didn't do the verses.   This was not nice of her.

      (11/03/2006 -- 3:52)

A-2 A Little Music In The Moonlight; 1926-Johnny Marvin.  In a time of June- moon-spoon songs, this is about the most romantic song I know and enjoy.

      (10/31/2006 -- 2:42)

A-3 Back In The Saddle; 1939-Gene Autry & Ray Whitley.  I can't take this song very seriously.  And didn't.

     (10/30/2006 -- 2:34)

A-4 Breezin' Along With The Breeze; 1926-Haven Gilliespie, Seymour    Simons, & Richard Whiting.  Richard Whiting, Margaret Whiting's dad, did some really nice tunes.

     (11/03/2006 -- 3:33)                   

A-5 Brother, Can You Spare A Dime?; 1931-E.W. Harburg & Jay Gorney.  This song from the 1932 musical "Americana" depicts the Depression days but its message continues today.  The show was not successful.

       (10/31/2006 -- 2:02)

A-8 Honey; 1928-Haven Gillespie & Richard Whiting.  Another Whiting tune.  This was John Dillinger's favorite song.  It is rarely heard with the verses.  This is too bad because it has the June, spoon, moon, themes presented in a more clever manner.

      (10/30/2006 -- 2:40)

A-9 If We Can't Be The Same Old Sweethearts; 1915-Joe McCarthy & Jimmie V.  Monaco.   Or could be called, "Song Of The Wimps."  But it is just too pretty to not be heard.  Very popular song.  Art Gillham had a good version.

     (11/02/2006 -- 4:14)                                              

A-10 I Hate To  Lose You; 1918-Archie Gottler & Grant Clarke.  This was romantic when written.  Now it seems presumptuous and downgrading.  I hear and generally do all these songs in context of when they were written.

     (10/30/2006 -- 3:09)

A-11 I’ll See You In C-U-B-A; 1920-Irving Berlin.  The Volstead Act went in to force January, 1920, and the US became "dry."  It is still a fun song to do in light of the US today.

     (10/30/2006 -- 3:02)

A-12 I’m Forever Blowing Bubbles; 1919-Jaan Kenbrovin & John Kellette.  Again, a song often done without the beautiful introduction...and the chorus suffers for it.

      (10/30/2006 -- 2:58)

A-13 It's The Talk Of The Town; 1933-Marty Symes, Al. J. Neigurg, & Jerry  Levinson.  Ozzie Nelson and His Columbia Orchestra had a good hit of this.

     (11/03/2006 -- 2:25)                

A-14 It's All Over Now; 1920-Lew Brown & Albert Von Tilzer.  A song of retaliation. 

     (10/30/2006 -- 3:12)

A-15 Let The Rest Of The World Go By; 1919-J. Keirn Brennan & Ernest R. Ball.  Considering the date it was composed, it is easy to see where the sentiment of this song came.  It's appeal is still the same today.

     (11/03/2006 -- 2:36)

A-16 When You And I Were Young, Maggie; 1866-George W. Johnson & J.A. Butterfield.  Originally a poem by George, the song has found its way into Scot music.  George was a Canadian school teacher and "Maggie" was Margaret Clark, a pupil.

They became engaged but Maggie contracted TB.  George and Maggie were married in 1864; she died the following year.   While Maggie had been very sick and in bed, Johnson had walked to a favorite hill of theirs and composed the poem. His friend, Butterfield, put it to music.  George died in 1917.

Bing Crosby, with son, Gary, had a hit of a jazzed up version of this song in 1949;   "Maggie Blues." 

     (10/30/2006 -- 3:48)

A-17 Makin’ Whoopee; 1929-Gus Kahn & Walter Donaldson.  A much maligned song because of performers not doing the verses.  The song topic is more current today than in 1929.   The song makes several social statements.

      (10/30/2006 -- 3:14)

A-18 Melancholy Baby; 1912-George A. Norton & Ernie Burnett.  Another maligned song for the same reason as "Makin' Whoopee."

     (11/03/2006 -- 5:30)

A-19 Mindin’ My Bus’ness; 1923-Gus Kahn & Walter Donaldson.  A fun song with good chord changes.  There were several versions.  Van and Schenck's  was played a little broadly.

     (10/30/2006 -- 3:42)

A-20 Painting The Clouds With Sunshine; 1929-Al Dubin & Joe Burke.  Important song from a good movie "Gold Diggers of Broadway".  Nick Lucas played a steel string guitar with a flat pick for "Tip Toe Through The Tulips" in this, now lost, 1929 movie.

     (11/02/2006 -- 3:18)

A-21 Riding Down the Canyon; 1939-Gene Autry & Smiley Burnett.  A classic cowboy song from the heights of cowboy musical movie days.

      (10/30/2006 -- 3:03)

A-22 She's Funny That Way; 1928-Neil Moret & Richard Whiting.  Whiting composed an unusually pretty tune for some superb lyrics.  It has nice chord progressions.

      (11/03/2006 -- 6:03)

A-23 Smiles; 1917-J. Will Callahan & Lee S. Roberts.  Again, a song that is too familiar to be fully appreciated because so often the pretty verses are not done.

     (10/30/2006 -- 3:21)

A-24 Somebody Else Is Getting It; 1912-Andrew B. Sterling & Harry Von Tilzer.  A very dated song but still fun to hear.

     (11/01/2006 -- 2:58)

A-25 The Man Who Comes Around; c.1930-Tommy Tucker.  "Little" Tommy Tucker got away with doing this song on the radio, but the Hays Code was just being put into action.  The Hays Code should be reintroduced.

      (11/01/2006 -- 2:34)

A-26 They Go Wild, Simply Wild Over Me; 1917-Joe MeCarthy & Fred Fisher.  A good-time, nonsense song from vaudeville and music halls.  Naturally, Billy Murray did it.

     (11/01/2006 -- 3:10)

A-27 Ukulele Lady; 1925-Gus Kahn & Richard Whiting.  The Whiting tune is clever, and as usual, Gus Kahn had good lyrics.  Always a fun song to do, but it needs ukuleles, of course.

     (10/30/2006 -- 4:32)

A-28 What Can I Say, After I Say I'm Sorry?; 1926-Walter Donaldson & Abe Lyman.  This was a very popular song in the late '20s and for good reason.  It is fun to play.

     (11/02/2006 -- 3:36)

A-29What Do You Want To Make Those Eyes At Me For?; 1916-Joe McCarthy, Howard Johnson, & Jimmy V. Monaco.  Significant song because it shows that flirting was a hobby back then, but in this song it went a little far.  The song done today generates more sinister thoughts.

     (10/30/2006 -- 2:43)                                  

A-30 When I Grow Too Old To Dream; 1935-Oscar Hammerstein & Sigmund  Romberg.   

    (11/03/2006 -- 2:02)                               

A-31 Will You Remember Me?; 1924-Harry Richman & Henry Santly.  This is the first song Richman wrote, and though a little insipid for a man's song, he was such a romantic, the song is a pleasure to hear and do.

     (11/02/2006 -- 3:41)

A-32 She Wouldn't Do What I Asked Her To; 1923 - Humorous song was done by Billy Murray during the Vaudeville days.  All songs from the period of 1900 to 1930 should be heard in context of that date; not the current date.

       (06/19/2007 -- 2:13)

A-33 A Picture From Life's Other Side; 1896. Charles E. Baer.  One of many old- time, tear-jerkin' songs...with morals, yet.  Beware, this is a long song and slow downloading...but worth the effort.

    (11/13/2010 -- 4:50)

A-34 Do I Worry?; 1940. Ink Spots' song.  During this period, Bill Kenny was the lead singer and it would be hard to find a smoother voice and with that amount of range.  This is played on my e-Guitar...a flat top guitar with a built-in amp.  The guitar is not plugged in for this song.  So it is being recorded acoustically.

    (11/04/2011 -- 2:20)

A-35 All Of Me; 1931. By Seymour Simmons & Gerald Marks.  Very popular song made famous by Belle Baker.   This has been one of the most recorded songs of its era.

    (05/10/2015 -- 2:05)

A-36 Don't Fence Me In; 1934. Bob Fletcher, some lyrics; Cole Porter lyrics and music. This was written for a movie that was never produced.  Cole Porter bought the lyrics (poem) from Fletcher for $250. Porter reworked the lyrics, only using some phrases of Fletcher's.   Porter wrote both verses. Then his publisher wouldn't let Porter give Fletcher credit for any lyrics. When the song became popular, Fletcher got some lawyers and he was then given credit for the lyrics; I assume he got royalties. 

When the song was popular, Porter's two verses were not used, nor were they used in the two movies where the song was performed.  But in 1944, Roy Rogers did sing the verses in the movie, "Hollywood Canteen."   Porter always said it was his least favorite of his compositions.

I do whole songs.
