Interesting Listening

Unread post by Renie » 21 Jul 2016, 18:17

I was recently listening to some ragtime era music on youtube and came across a song played by an orchestra and also on a nickelodean that sounded so familiar but I couldn't quite place it. Finally I remembered that Doris sang it in one of her movies. Here are the links to all three versions. Renie

Renie, thank you for your posting. I did not realize the extensive history behind "King Chanticleer" until your post. Besides the two sites of ragtime performances you posted, the thread led me to two other interesting performances by Adam Swanson and Adam Yarian. Both are performed as solo piano numbers by the two gifted pianists. Thanks again, and
Happy Days, Texas Gonzalo

Thanks for the links to this cute song, Renie. It was written by Nat Ayer and Seymour Brown, who also co-wrote Oh, You Beautiful Doll.

Thanks Tex and Musiclover for your comments. There are lots of versions of this song on youtube. Who knew?
I actually used to think this song was one of those novelty tunes that was dreamed up by the studio for Doris to sing but I'm discovering that it was really a popular song in its' day. Renie
