The Story Behind The Song
This was another song that started out as an instrumental written by Raymond Scott and performed by his quintet. Scott had simply taken one of Mozart's charming etudes and translated it into modern dance music. I was given the privilege of inventing a story to fit the period and writing a lyric. Our combined effort spent many weeks on Your Hit Parade, gained many big band recordings plus a superb rendition by the Andrews Sisters.
