The forgotton songs thread
« on: March 03, 2012, 09:20:19 AM »
I was asked to make a list of the songs posted in this thread for future reference - so here it is, in order of posting.


Page 1
The Umbrella Man
Let’s Misbehave
Stardust
The Very Thought of You
You took advantage of me
J’attendrai
In the land of ooh blah dee
La Vie en Rose
It’s only a paper moon
Stranger on the shore
Mr Lucky
Runnin’ Wild
After you’ve gone
Cuckoo in the clock
The World is waiting for the Sunrise


Page 2
Dream a Little Dream of  Me
Nevertheless
Two Sleepy People
Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered
The best gift
Teach me tonight
A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square
I Never Knew
Laura


Page 3
Smoke Gets in Your Eyes
Taking a Chance on Love
Nature Boy
Love’s Old Sweet Song
The Windmills of  Your Mind
It Had to be You
Let It Be Me
Vagabond Lover
Everything is Fresh Today
Lazy Moon
Joanna
Misty Blue
Every time We Say Goodbye
For All We Know


Page 4
I  can’t believe that you’re in love with me
All of  Me
Jeepers Creepers
Try a Little Tenderness
I’ll see you in my dreams
Corcovado
La Javanaise
Into Each Life Some Rain Must Fall
Painting the Clouds With Sunshine
When I'm Gone
Morningtown Ride
Drink to me only with thine eyes
Goodnight Sweetheart
All Through the Night


Page 5
Pretty Paper
I Dreamt I Dwelt in Marble Halls
In Dulci Jubilo
Daddy Wouldn’t Buy Me a Bow Wow
On the sunny side of the street
Wide Eyed and Legless
After the Ball is Over
The Trolley Song
Fine and  Mellow
There’ll be you and I
Malaguena
The Arnold Concerto
Make Believe
Travellin’ Light
All the Things You Are
Midnight Train to Georgia
Dream a little dream of me
My Prayer
Once Upon a Time in the West
It Might as Well be Spring


Page 6
Moon river
You know that I’m no good
Cavalaria Ligeira
Ro-Ro-Rollin’ Along
Dedicated to You
Mid 30s hits
Little White Lies
Ghost riders in the sky
Hoppy, Gene and me
Little Old wine Drinker Me



I thought it would be good to start a thread where members could post links to old songs that have long disappeared from the playlists - like this one from 1939.

And from a decade earlier, something a little more upbeat.

A song that is now of course a very well known jazz standard - but here we go right back to the songwriter's own interpretation - from the late 1920s.

And here is a great instrumental interpretation.

Another original recording of a standard from way back in 1934.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8bw5h-WPYBQ&feature=related

Very interesting to compare it with the classic 1971 recording of the same song - got to love that trumpet 8)

"You Took Advantage of Me," Rodgers and Hart. It's on Slim and Penny's "Topsy Turvy" CD. (I also have a nice rendition by Bobby Short on one of his albums.)

Strange that it is blocked in the US and not in Europe. Must be a Google US legal issue. Thanks AJ for posting the alternative link.

Umm, not quite ;) I've tried to watch a great many videos only to find them blocked as being 'unavailable in your Country' (I'm in the US). I suspect it might have to do with the last set of updated copyright rules passed in the UK?  Here's a link:

Following on the French theme from my last post - not the original recording this time - but this version is hard to beat.

lemme fold it
gimme me money money money money money

(or somethin like that)

Howdy Amnesiacs.

Here's a forgotten song that may be unknown to many:

Strangers on the Shore, by Acker Bilk (Bilik?).

See? I've forgotten the composer's name.

Best regards

Mr. Acker Bilk (someone once said that "Acker" means Mister, making his name from the dept. of redundancy dept.)

Jerry Bilik was a student at the University of Michigan, and eventually a theory and arranging teacher there. After some years there, he ran away to the circus—Ringling Bros.-Barnum & Bailey, to be exact. True story. He was one of my teachers. He's in his late 70s now.

There is a well known song from the 193?'s , that uses Barnum & Bailey in the lyric, good one for the harmonica . Try guessing before checking the link.

Oops. I think mine may have been a circus march used by Barnum & Bailey. Shoulda read your post more carefully.

Hello, Forgetful Ones.

Grizzly, thanks for clearing up my confusion about Acker Bilk. The song, Stangers on the Shore, was the theme of a BBC television series in the early 1950s.

I studied some of Jerry Bilik's books at UW-Milwaukee. They were excellent.

Best Regards

John B. Broecker
(The "B" is for Bilik)

Okay all you Brits, how 'bout the theme from "Dial 999 ?" As a kid, I used to play that one in a silo on my 64.

Nice work jazmaan - that's why I started this thread. I know you guys think I am crazy - but the idea was to put some good old tunes into people's heads and maybe they will enjoy playing them on their chromatics.

Ok - let's hear it for Acker Bilk 8)

A well known old, old song from 1922 - made very famous when it featured in a Hollywood comedy movie in 1958 - for those who like clues.

I like this version - a little live piano duet featuring Stephanie Trick, whose youtube videos are all first class - check out her solo stride piano work.

Here we go back to 1918 - the last year of World War 1 - when this old song was written. Stephanie and Paolo again working together to give a very sensitive interpretation of this piece.
