    The Golden Age of Pop Music. 1920-1950. What is Your Favorite Song?

    A time we will never see again. The great composers and lyricists,Irving Berlin,Harold Arlen,Jerome Kern,Cole Porter,Johnny Mercer.

    The great entertainers,Bing,Frank,Louis,Sarah,Jo,Al. We only need their first names.

    What a time it was!

    Maybe you have some memories of that era. Here is my all time favorite ,this track done by Louis. Ella also has some great versions.

    I Can't Give You Anything But Love. 1928. Music by Jimmy McHugh,lyrics by Dorothy Fields.

    #2 is These Foolish Things,1936.



    If you can't jive to that,you just can't jive! Munich,1962. Louie was 61 at the time. The one and only,Pops!

    Great music. As a kid I heard a lot of it, my folks bought a 10-record set of the best of the big bands and it was mostly what got played until I could afford to buy my own with my paper route money.

    A few that stick to my ears --
    I'm getting sentimental over you Tommy Dorsey
    Take the A train Duke Ellington
    I'll be seeing you Frank Sinatra
    Chattanooga Choo Choo Glenn Miller

    And there are so many more.
    Paul
