  Tell Me

Lyrics by J. Will Callahan and Music by Max D. Kortlander (1919)

Probably in the "Top Ten" most beautiful songs of the Tin Pan Alley
era comes this exquisite love song that does not deserve to be
forgotten! Heard in the film For Me And My Gal with Judy Garland
and Gene Kelly, although the song was sung by Lucille Norman

  La Lisonjera
(The Flatterer)

Written By Piano Composer Cécile Chaminade (1912)

This quiet, bittersweet, haunting piece is just so lovely it makes your heart ache.
A slight Italian and French flavor to it makes it very European in style.

  Bimini Bay

Lyrics by Gus Kahn and Raymond B. Egan, Music by Richard Whiting (1921) 

A delightful Tin Pan Alley comedy song about an island
where all the rich men like to go - but not for the girls ;)

  Just Like A Gipsy

Music and Lyrics Written by Seymour Simons and Nora Bayes (1919) 

A catchy, melodic Tin Pan Alley era song about a wandering man

  I'm Drifting Back To Dreamland

Words by Florence Charlesworth, Charles Harrison 
Music by Jack Sadler (1922) 

A very romantic and old fashioned love song;
everyone loved Coney Island's Dreamland!
Years after it was destroyed by fire folks
still dreamed of its past glories.

  Girl O' Mine

Waltz Ballad Written by George Spink (1920)

A very pretty waltz about a fellow who is missing his old girlfriend,
even three years after she left him. I bought this on eBay and fell
in love with it. It's a simple but a sophisticated melody. Sometimes
that is a difficult combination to get right in a song; this one succeeds.

  Deep In Your Eyes

Early Broadway Love Song Duet from the Charles Dillingham Show "The Half Moon"
Performed at the Liberty Theater (which is now Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum)
Lyrics by William Le Baron, Music by Victor Jacobi (1920)

An exquisitely romantic duet in an operetta style. The show only lasted 48 performances
but the beauty of this song will make you wonder, Why?
