THE GREAT AMERICAN SONGBOOK

HARRY WARREN

SHIPMATES FOREVER: ”I’D RATHER LISTEN TO YOUR EYES”

The first thing that hits you is that Mildred Bailey’s version is cutting edge and quite a bit ahead of its time. This is a more standard look at the tune.

Phil Harris: “I’d Rather Listen to Your Eyes”

THE GREAT AMERICAN SONGBOOK

HARRY WARREN

SHIPMATES FOREVER: ”I’D RATHER LISTEN TO YOUR EYES”

The film in its nitrate stock has probably decomposed into flammable dust. Dick Powell sang it in the film, and here Al Jolson sings it the way a belter would. You can hear the original intro in this version.

THE GREAT AMERICAN SONGBOOK

HARRY WARREN

”PAGE MISS GLORY”

Marion Davies had left MGM for Warner Brothers due to the influence of her longtime lover William Randolph Hearst. Marion was the owner of Rosebud, which was not a sled! Her first appearance at Warner Brothers was a box office disaster, and the film is forgotten today. The studio was getting into a rut.

The song is best remembered for its appearance in a cartoon of the same name that functioned as a music video. Baby Boomers heard it this way on children’s TV. It’s definitely a catchy tune.

Paul Pendarvis: “Page Miss Glory”

THE GREAT AMERICAN SONGBOOK

HARRY WARREN

”PAGE MISS GLORY”

This is a more conventional Thirties dance band approach, and Rudy does a fine job with vocal duties.

Rudy Vallee: “Page Miss Glory”

Tune in next weekend for more Harry Warren and the Great American Songbook.

Thanks, Publius, for more musical history. I’m still amazed at how many different artists sang the same songs and made them so different. And what an amazing writer, that Harry Warren of The Great American Songbook. Thanks! ((HUGS))
