Birthday – Part 2

The brochure from yesterday dealing with my birthday year got me to thinking about other things that may have happened during that “most momentous year.” This is some of the music which has survived from 1947:
1. Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah
2. White Christmas – Bing Crosby
3. Too Fat Polka (I Don’t Want Her-You Can Have Her-She’s Too Fat For Me) – Arthur Godfrey
4. One O’Clock Jump – Count Basie
5. All of Me – Frankie Lane
6. Almost Like Being in Love – Jo Stafford
7. Anything You Can Do (I Can Do Better) – the Andrew Sisters, Bing Crosby, and Dick Haymes
8. Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas – Frank Sinatra
9. Peg O’ My Heart – the Harmonicats
10. Night and Day – Frank Sinatra
11. I Wanna Be Loved (But Only By You) – Savannah Churchill and The Sentimentalists
12. Singing the Blues – Frankie Lane
13. Wiffenpoof Song – Bing Crosby & Fred Waring
14. Near You – Francis Craig
15. Smoke! Smoke! Smoke! (That Cigarette) – Tex Williams
1947 was the year that “Annie Get Your Gun,” “Brigadoon,” “Finian’s Rainbow,” and “Oklahoma” all opened on Broadway.
Others who share my birthday year are David Bowie, Elton John, Meat Loaf, Iggy Pop, Tommy James, Bob Weir (Grateful Dead), Brian Johnson (AC/DC), Peter Noone (Herman’s Hermits), Greg Allman, Joe Walsh (James Gang & the Eagles), Buck Dharma (Blue Oyster Cult), and Dennis De Young (Styx).
I really am in great company.
