South of The Border – Música

“South of the Border” is a popular song describing a trip to Mexico, written by Jimmy Kennedy and Michael Carr and published in 1939 for the film of the same name starring country star Gene Autry.

“South of the Border” (Gene Autry, 1939)

Ay-ay-ay-ay
Ay-ay-ay-ay

South of the Border, down Mexico way
That’s where I fell in love
When stars above came out to play
And now as I wander
My thoughts ever stray
South of the border, down Mexico way

She was a picture in old Spanish lace
Just for a tender while
I kissed the smile upon her face
For it was “Fiesta” and we were so gay
South of the border, down Mexico way

Then she sighed as she whispered “Mañana”
Never dreaming that we were parting
And I lied as I whispered “Mañana”
For that tomorrow never came

South of the border, I rode back one day
There in a veil of white
By candlelight she knelt to pray
The bells told me that I mustn’t stay
South of the border, down Mexico way
Ay-ay-ay-ay, (Ay-ay-ay-ay,) etc

It’s The Girl – Música

(Music: Abel Baer / Lyrics: Dave Oppenheim)

Boswell Sisters accompained by The Dorsey Brothers – It’s The Girl (1931)

It isn’t the paddle, it’s not the canoe,
It isn’t the river or skies that are blue,
It isn’t the love dreams that bring joy to you,
It’s the girl, oh, it’s the girl!

It isn’t the progress that you always want to do,
It isn’t the mountain flowers or the mornin’ dew,
It isn’t the love nest that brings love to you,
It’s the girl that makes you happy and it’s the girl that makes you blue!

You up and down men,
What a lonely world would be without them!

It isn’t the songbirds, the song that they sing,
It isn’t the sunshine that makes you like Spring,
So what is this magic that makes all the thing?
It’s the girl, oh, it’s the girl!

Some folks need atmosphere when they’re makin’ love,
They say old mother nature makes love grand!
Still, lovers will complain that they need a shove,
If you’re a Romeo, you’ll understand!

It isn’t the paddle, it’s not the canoe,
It isn’t the river or skies that are blue,
It isn’t the love beams that bring joy to you,
Wherever you go, whatever you do, it’s the girl!

It isn’t the progress that you wanna do,
It isn’t the mountains, the flowers or the mornin’ dew,
It isn’t the love nest that brings love to you,
It’s the girl, it’s the girl!

It’s not the places you go,
It’s not the crowd,
It’s not the folks you know,
Oh listen while I shout out loud!

(scat)
It’s the girl!

“Happy Days Are Here Again” is a song copyrighted in 1929 by Milton Ager (music) and Jack Yellen (lyrics) and published by EMI Robbins Catalog, Inc./Advanced Music Corp. The song was recorded by Leo Reisman and His Orchestra, with Lou Levin, vocal (November 1929),[citation needed] and was featured in the 1930 film Chasing Rainbows. The song concluded the picture, in what film historian Edwin Bradley described as a “pull-out-all-the-stops Technicolor finale, against a Great War Armistice show-within-a-show backdrop.” This early example of 2-strip Technicolor footage was, along with another Technicolor sequence, later cut from the 1931 re-edited release of the otherwise black-and-white film, and is believed to have been lost in the 1967 MGM Vault 7 fire.

Benjamin Bernard (“Ben”) Selvin (March 5, 1898 – July 15, 1980), son of Russian-immigrant Jewish parents, was a musician, bandleader, record producer and innovator in recorded music. He was known as The Dean of Recorded Music.

Happy days are here again
The skies above are clear again
So let’s sing a song of cheer again
Happy days are here again
Altogether shout it now
There’s no one

Who can doubt it now
So let’s tell the world about it now
Happy days are here again
Your cares and troubles are gone
There’ll be no one from now on
From now on…
Happy days are here again
The skies above are here again
So, Let’s sing a song of cheer again
Happy times
Happy nights
Happy days
Are here again!
