Bert Ambrose
Tip Toe Through The Tulips

Written by Al Dubin (lyrics) and Joe Burke (music), the song was recorded by Nick Lucas in May of 1929. Lucas introduced the song in the 1929 talkie Gold Diggers of Broadway. The song would stay at number one for 10 weeks on the charts. In 1969 Tiny Tim would bring this song back to charts with his recording. The song became popular again after Tiny Tim performed it on Rowan and Martins Laugh In.

Cliff Edwards
Singin in the Rain

Not many songs have as varied a history as Singin in the Rain. It's up tempo music with lyrics full of hope would continue to be remembered throughout the 20th century and into the 21st. The song was turned into a film in 1952 starring Debbie Reynolds and Gene Kelly. The film is considered by many as one of the best movies ever made.

The song was originally written by Arthur Freed lyrics and music by Nacio Herb Brown, and published in 1929. There are suggestions that song was written and performed as early as 1927. Cliff Edwards would perform the song in the 1929 film musical The Hollywood Revue of 1929. This performance would be the opening of the film That's Entertainment a retrospective of MGM musicals. The song would again be used in the film Speak Easily starring Jimmy Durante and again by Judy Garland in the film Little Nellie Kellie.

The song was used in the second season of GLEE as a mash up with Umbrella. The song was song by Mathew Morrison and Gwyneth Paltrow.

Eddie Cantor
Makin Whoopie

First popularized by Eddie Cantor in the 1928 musical Whoopee!. Walter Donaldson (music) and Gus Kahn( lyrics) for the song as well as for the entire musical. The song would go on to be recorded by Frank Sinatra, and as a duet by Danny Thomas and Doris Day. The song is about sexual intimacy both its good and its bad sides.

Johnny Hamp's Kentucky Serenaders
If I Had A Talking Picture of You
If I Had a Talking Picture of You was by Lew Brown, B.g. Desylva, Ray Henderson. This song was probably inspired by the introduction of talking movies in the 1929. It would later be song as a period song for Peter Davidson's title character of Campion in the BBC series.

Fats Waller
Ain't Misbehavin
Fats Waller was a composer and song writer that left a large library of great music that will live on forever after his much too short a life. Waller would be the first to record the song but he also performed the song in the 1943 film Stormy Weather. The song would go on to be recorded by such different artists as Johnny Ray and Bill Haley and The Comets. The song would also be the Title of a musical revue in 1978 that showcased the jazz songs on the period.

Rudy Vallee and his Connecticut Yankees
This song was written by the great Irving Berlin in 1929. It would go on to be recorded by such artists as The Mills Brothers and Tommy Dorsey and his Orchestra. One reason this recording is particularly memorable is because it is the first time Rudy Vallee would make his mark on the charts. Vallee would go on to make quite an impression on American culture as many would enjoy his songs as well as his personal style. One of the big crazes he started was the full length raccoon coat.

Louis Armstrong
The Basin Street Blues
This song was originally written and published in 1926, but made its hit when Louis Armstrong made his recording in 1929. The song is actually about the Red Light District in The French Quarter of New Orleans.
