Ben Bernie I'm Looking Over a Four Leaf Clover
Written by Harry Woods and Mort Dixon the song has a long
history of being remade. It was used in more than one of Warner
Brothers Merrie Melody cartoons. The song is a staple for
St. Patrick's Day and was even parodied in 1973, the title
changed to I'm Looking over My dead Dog Rover. The song has
been adapted as an anthem for Major League Soccer's Philadelphia
Union and The Son's of Ben, the team supporters, sing it at
every home game. In 2012 the song was recorded again by Willie
Ben Bernie Ain't She Sweet.
Was written by Milton Ager and Jack Yellen, both of whom have
places in the Song Writers Hall Of Fame. The song would continue
to recorded across the 20th century by such artist as Pearl
Bailey, Guy Lombardo and The Beatles.
Ben Selvin Blue Skies
Blue Skies was written by Irving Berlin who plays an important
role in the first half of the 20th century in American Pop
Music. It would go across the century and into the 21sr century
being recorded again and again by such artists as Judy Garland,
Frank Sinatra, Debbie Boone and Rod Stewart.
The song was written by Berlin as an added song to the Rodger's
and Hart Musical, Betsy. The song would live on, but the musical
closed after 39 performances.
Blue Skies would go to be performed both on television movies
and Broadway shows. The song had a movie named after it and
joined other Berlin songs that has that honor such as White
Christmas, Easter Parade and There's No Business Like Show
Business. Most recently the song was brought back to life
in a production number for the Broadway production of Irving
Berlin's White Christmas.
George Olson The Best Things in Life Are Free.
This song is from the 1927 musical Good News, book by Laurence
Schwab and B.G. DeSylva, lyrics by DeSylva and Lew Brown,
and music by Ray Henderson. The story surrounds a college
football player who needs to pass an exam in order to play
in the big game that weekend. He gets a tutor to help study
and during their study time this song is song.
This is another song that would make it's a way across the
rest of the 20th century. Being recorded by June Allyson Joe
Stafford, Frank Sinatra and Barbara Striesand. There would
be a film named after the song in 1956, based on the lives
of the writers.
Gertrude Lawrence Someone to Watch Over Me
Someone To Watch Over Me, was written by George and Ira Gershwin
for the musical Oh Kay, which still is done, on occasion,
by community theatre groups. The song would be introduced
by Gertrude Lawrence, who would remain a top Broadway name
for many years. She would eventually go on to play the lead
of Anna Leonowens in Rodger's and Hammerstein the King and
I. The King and I was written specifically for her and at
her request. The ineresting thing about the show is Gertrude
Lawrence would fade and he C0-Saty Yul Brynner would begin
to rise. The King and I would be his most remembered roll.
The song would grow in popularity and be regularly rerecorded
by such singers as Rosemary Clooney, Linda Ronstadt, Sting,
Brian Wilson and as late as 2011 by Susan Boyle. The song
was performed 3 times on American Idol. It was used as an
instrumental in the second season of GLEE and Lady Gaga would
perform the song on the today show. Proving this song is timeless.
The video provided is Julie Andrews singing the song in the
movie STAR which was the life of Gertrude Lawrence.

Whispering Jack Smith Me and my Shadow
The song was originally written by Al Jolson, Billy Rose,
and Dave Dreyer. The truth may be that Jolson contributed

recorded the song include Michael Ball and Antonio Banderas,
Perry Como, Lou Rawls and Mandy Patimkin.

Mills and Paul Anka, but is probably best known in a 1953
recording by Kay Starr.
