Bewitched

The actual title is 'Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered' but that is such a mouthful it gets little use. A show tune dating back to the 1940 Rodgers and Hart Musical 'Pal Joey', it has been popular ever since. Frank Sinatra sings it in the film. However, it has had dozens of other well-known artists recording it, e.g. Celine Dion, Rod Stewart, Carly Simon, Linda Ronstadt, Barbra Streisand, June Christy, Ella Fitzgerald, etc. Piano - Roberton Publications 53204 (please order direct) – price code X – duration c.2'35"

Bye Bye Blackbird

Another 1926 title, here arranged in three parts (TBB). There is much speculation about the meaning of the song, but the general consensus is that it is probably about a prostitute leaving the business and going home to mother. This explanation hasn't prevented it being used in at least seven movies, the latest being Sleepless in Seattle and The History Boys. The tune is also popular with the jazz fraternity.

Chattanooga Choo Choo

The Deadwood Stage

The film 'Calamity Jane' was a huge hit for Doris Day, and she produced one of the legendary performances in movie history. Everyone has probably heard the Oscar-winning 'Secret Love', but that is definitely a woman's song. The Deadwood Stage ran it a close second and is much more appropriate for a male choir, so "Whip crack away!"

Don't Fence Me In

Originally written in 1934 for a film musical that was never produced, it is a rare example of a Cole Porter song with lyrics by somebody else. Porter bought the rights from the composer/lyricist (Robert Fletcher) with an agreement that he could modify the lyrics here and there and compose his own melody. It was published giving Porter sole authorship, but became a huge hit, courtesy of the Andrews Sisters, selling over a million copies. Fletcher then hired lawyers and eventually obtained co-ownership. Although it was a big success at the time, Porter always claimed it was the least favourite of his compositions.
