For March, the decade was the 1920s. I was blown away with the all the incredible music from the 20s! What I found interesting, I've heard many of these songs before either in movies, TV shows, or even commercials (United Airlines - Rhapsody in Blue). But the one song that hit me the most was "Tip Toe Thru’ The Tulips With Me". Growing up in the 1960s, everyone knew that this was Tiny Tim's song - well it was actually performed by Nick Lucas in 1929 a long time before Tiny Tim!
For March, I selected these songs from the 1920s:
California, Here I Come 1924
My Blue Heaven 1927
Ain’t She Sweet 1927
Ol’ Man River 1928
Tip Toe Thru’ The Tulips With Me 1929
When You’re Smiling 1929
I’m Looking Over a Four Leaf Clover 1927
Rhapsody in Blue 1924
Rhapsody in Blue, George Gershwin
Tip Toe Thru' The Tulips With Me, Nick Lucas
Ain't She Sweet
It was different on the walk this morning, trekking through the woods to Bolero. It almost felt like it was a movie, if you think about it, they always have some type of music in scenes like that.
There are so many more songs I want to get from the 20s. I think after I get through the 20th century, I'll back track to the decades I was intrigued by the most and explore deeper, so far the 1920s are first in line.
