Tunes beginning with "B"

Postby KRUG » 01 Jan 2017 10:26

I have been asked to copy posts here as some people do not use Facebook. (Facebook Group for players of all standards.

https://www.facebook.com/groups/357290161278810/

The group Practical Organ and Keyboard Players was formed to give players an opportunity to play music related to a theme and share their efforts with like minded people. It is not for the publication of previously recorded music. More information is available on the site.)

For two weeks we are looking for tunes beginning with the letter "B" but definite and indefinite articles (the, a, an) can be ignored.

"A Bird in a Gilded Cage" is a song composed by Arthur J. Lamb and Harry Von Tilzer. It was a sentimental ballad (or tear-jerker) that became one of the most popular songs of 1900, reportedly selling more than two million copies in sheet music. Jere Mahoney and Steve Porter recorded two early popular versions of this song.
According to Von Tilzer, he was approached in 1899 by Lamb with the lyrics for a song. Although Von Tilzer liked it, he asked Lamb to change some of the words to make it clear that the woman in the song was married and not a mistress. Later that evening, as he worked out a melody at a piano in a public house with some friends, he noticed that many of the girls nearby were crying, which convinced him the song could be a hit. Later, Von Tilzer would claim that this song was "the key that opened the door of wealth and fame" for him. Its success signaled the dominance of ballads in American popular music through 1914.

The song describes the sad life of a beautiful woman who has married for money instead of love. Its lyrics are as follows:

The ballroom was filled with fashion's throng,
It shone with a thousand lights,
And there was a woman who passed along,
The fairest of all the sights,
A girl to her lover then softly sighed,
There's riches at her command;
But she married for wealth, not for love, he cried,
Though she lives in a mansion grand.
CHORUS
She's only a bird in a gilded cage,
A beautiful sight to see,
You may think she's happy and free from care,
She's not, though she seems to be,
'Tis sad when you think of her wasted life,
For youth cannot mate with age,
And her beauty was sold,
For an old man's gold,
She's a bird in a gilded cage.

I stood in a churchyard just at eve',
When sunset adorned the west,
And looked at the people who'd come to grieve,
For loved ones now laid at rest,
A tall marble monument marked the grave,
Of one who'd been fashion's queen,
And I thought she is happier here at rest,
Than to have people say when seen.

And a Happy New Year to you all.

By The Side Of The Zuyder Zee

Postby KRUG » 02 Jan 2017 10:27

https://app.box.com/s/0yqvmt81mgnl3xcfvrlyr3rcmzrybhqv

BY THE SIDE OF THE ZUYDER ZEE.
This is a music hall song from the early years of the twentieth century. It is interesting in that the verse is in 4/4 time and the chorus in ¾. I have arranged it for Amsterdam accordion as that would seem likely to be authentic.

By the flowing Zuyder Zee so blue, There's a little Dutch girl I love true;
Of my little Gretchen. dear, I'm dreaming all day.
She's a picture anyone would choose,
In her dainty frock and wooden shoes;
I've seen other girls, but still my heart is far away -

CHORUS

By the side of the Zuyder Zee , Zuyder Zee, Zuyder Zee,
There my Deitcher girl waits for me-only me!
I've seen diamonds in Amsterdam Amsterdam Amsterdam,
But there's not a diamond as bright as those eyes by the Zuyder - Zee

I had such a feeling round my heart,
When there came a time we had to part;
From my little Gretchen I was sailing away.
As we stood upon the old Dutch shore,
In her eyes of blue, big tears I saw;
Standing on the big ship I could hear the wild waves say,

CHORUS

Some day by the dear old Zuyder Zee,
With my little Gretchen I shall be;
In a cosy cot far from the big City's whirl.
When the stars are peeping in the skies,
We wi1l sing the old Dutch lullabies;
How I long to sail back to my little Deitcher girl!

CHORUS

Hi Everyone I did this one a while ago a Fats Domino tune, Blueberry Hill. However I have changed the style and sounds which have been supplied courtesy of Michael our regular singer and player at the keyboard clubs. Hope this fits in and no rules broken. Hope you enjoy your listen with new year dampness. John

Hi Keith,

The sounds you used and the way you played it gave it the feel of a music hall number, well played and voiced.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hi John,

That was a good version of that number which you played and voiced very well I thought.

Barcarolle

Postby KRUG » 03 Jan 2017 10:12

https://app.box.com/s/qnock0afvus6f55j556t4cmifpr9n8tr

Barcarolle from the Tales of Hoffman by Offenbach
The Tales of Hoffmann was scheduled for a premiere at a Paris theater called the Gaite-Lyrique — during its 1877-78 season. When that theatre suffered budget cutbacks, Offenbach continued work on the opera — now intended for another theater, the Opera-Comique. But Offenbach died in 1880, while the production was still in rehearsal, leaving the score incomplete.

Over the years, all the way to the 1980s, scholars continued to find manuscripts for the opera that were left behind, and many different versions of the score have been assembled. But despite those difficulties, The Tales of Hoffmann has long been one of the most popular operas in the standard repertory.

Barcarolle
Lovely night, oh, night of love
Smile upon our joys!
Night much sweeter than the day
Oh beautiful night of love!
Time flies by, and carries away
Our tender caresses for ever!
Time flies far from this happy oasis
And does not return
Burning zephyrs
Embrace us with your caresses!
Burning zephyrs
Give us your kisses!

Beyond The Sea

Postby KRUG » 04 Jan 2017 10:18

https://app.box.com/s/6tuc3mneraesk147w1khtj8fqnflpz64

"Beyond the Sea" is a 1946 contemporary pop romantic love song by Jack Lawrence, with music taken from the song "La Mer" by Charles Trenet.

Trenet had composed "La Mer" (which means "the Sea") with French lyrics completely different and unrelated to the English-language version that Lawrence later wrote. Trenet's French version was a homage and ode to the changing moods of the sea, while Lawrence, by just adding one word "Beyond" to the title, gave him the start whereby he made the song into one of a dear lover mourning for a lost love.
It has been recorded by many artists, but Bobby Darin's version released in 1959 is the best known by many, reaching no. 6 on the Billboard Hot 100, no. 15 on the US R&B Chart, and no. 8 in the UK Singles Chart.

Prior to Bobby Darin, two recordings reached the Top 40 of the Billboard Hot 100. Benny Goodman's version charted in 1948, and was featured in the Cary Grant/Betsy Drake romantic comedy Every Girl Should Be Married. Roger Williams' recording reached no. 37 in 1955.

Deana Martin recorded Beyond the Sea in 2013. The song was released on her album, Destination Moon, in 2013 by Big Fish Records.

American R&B singer George Benson recorded an R&B version of the song under the title "Beyond The Sea (La Mer)." It was released on Warner Bros. This version entered the UK Singles Chart on 20 April 1985. It reached a peak position of no. 60 and remained on the chart for three weeks.

"By The Light of the Silvery Moon" or "By the Light of the Silv'ry Moon" is a popular song. The music was written by Gus Edwards, and the lyrics by Edward Madden. The song was published in 1909 and first performed on stage by Lillian Lorraine. It was one of a series of moon-related Tin Pan Alley songs of the era.
By the light of the silvery moon,
I want to spoon, to my honey I'll croon love's tune,
Honeymoon keep a-shining in June,
Your silvery beams will bring love dreams, we'll be cuddling soon,
By the silvery moon.

By the light, (By the light, By the light),
Of the silvery moon, (The silvery moon).
I want to spoon, (Want to spoon, Want to spoon)
To my honey I'll croon love's tune.
Honeymoon, (Honeymoon, Honeymoon),
Keep on shining in June. (Keep on shining in June)
Your silvery beams will bring love dreams,
We'll be cuddling soon,
By the silvery moon.
Your silvery beams will bring love dreams,
We'll be cuddling soon,
By the silvery moon. (The silvery moon).

"Banks of the Ohio" is a 19th-century murder ballad, in which "Willie" invites his young lover for a walk during which she rejects his marriage proposal.
Once they are alone on the river bank, he murders the young woman. This was played and Mulit-Tracked on the Tyros 5

Hi Everyone I think this was by Boney M. The style was supposed to be disco but could not get it right. Played it as a swing. Tried different sounds but settled for these. Hope you enjoy your listen of Brown girl in the ring. John

Hi John and Brian, Thanks for your comments. Bertie was all theatre organ but might well have been an oboe stop in there.

A slower than usual but more thoughtful version of this song.

The "Battle Cry of Freedom", also known as "Rally 'Round the Flag", is a song written in 1862 by American composer George Frederick Root (1820–1895) during the American Civil War. A patriotic song advocating the causes of Unionism and abolitionism, it became so popular that composer H. L. Schreiner and lyricist W. H. Barnes adapted it for the Confederacy.
A modified Union version was used as the campaign song for the Lincoln-Johnson ticket in the 1864 presidential election, as well as in elections after the war, such as for Garfield in the 1880 U.S. presidential election. The song was so popular that the music publisher had 14 printing presses going at one time and still could not keep up with demand. It is estimated that over 700,000 copies of this song were put in circulation. Louis Moreau Gottschalk thought so highly of the song that in his diary he confided that he thought "it should be our national anthem" and used it as the basis for his 1863 concert paraphrase for solo piano "Le Cri de délivrance," opus 55, and dedicated it to Root, who was a personal friend.
Pick your side and sing along

Union Version
Yes we'll rally round the flag, boys, we'll rally once again,[5]
Shouting the battle cry of freedom,
We will rally from the hillside, we'll gather from the plain,
Shouting the battle cry of freedom!

(Chorus)
The Union forever! Hurrah, boys, hurrah!
Down with the traitors, up with the stars;
While we rally round the flag, boys, we rally once again,
Shouting the battle cry of freedom!
We are springing to the call of our brothers gone before,[a]
Shouting the battle cry of freedom!
And we'll fill our vacant ranks with a million freemen more,
Shouting the battle cry of freedom!

(Chorus)

Confederate version
Our flag is proudly floating on the land and on the main,
Shout, shout the battle cry of Freedom!
Beneath it oft we've conquered, and we'll conquer oft again!
Shout, shout the battle cry of Freedom!

(Chorus)
Our Dixie forever! She's never at a loss!
Down with the eagle and up with the cross
We'll rally 'round the bonny flag, we'll rally once again,
Shout, shout the battle cry of Freedom!
Our gallant boys have marched to the rolling of the drums.
Shout, shout the battle cry of Freedom!
And the leaders in charge cry out, "Come, boys, come!"
Shout, shout the battle cry of Freedom!

(Chorus)

Hi John, The gremlins at work., I can remember commenting on your Brown Girl but cannot see the post. My comment was along the lines of that like all your posts they are like a good wine. At first you seem to have red button syndrome and as the song progresses you gain in confidence and play much better. Solution - record the first verse two or three times before moving on and then chop it off when you have finished. No not that! So speaks he who knows nowt.

The Battle Hymn of the Republic

Postby KRUG » 08 Jan 2017 10:11

https://app.box.com/s/pfjtf5dsfcm0e8bx3h0ztcg2u4xtviok

"The Battle Hymn of the Republic", also known as "Mine Eyes Have Seen the Glory" outside of the United States, is a song by American writer Julia Ward Howe using the music from the song "John Brown's Body." Howe's more famous lyrics were written in November 1861, and first published in The Atlantic Monthly in February 1862. The song links the judgment of the wicked at the end of the age (Old Testament, Isaiah 63; New Testament, Rev. 19) with the American Civil War. Since that time, it has become an extremely popular and well-known American patriotic song.
Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord;
He is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored;
He hath loosed the fateful lightning of His terrible swift sword:
His truth is marching on.

(Chorus)
Glory, glory, hallelujah!

Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
His truth is marching on.

I have seen Him in the watch-fires of a hundred circling camps,
They have builded Him an altar in the evening dews and damps;
I can read His righteous sentence by the dim and flaring lamps:
His day is marching on.

(Chorus)
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
His day is marching on.

I have read a fiery gospel writ in burnished rows of steel:
"As ye deal with my contemners, so with you my grace shall deal";
Let the Hero, born of woman, crush the serpent with his heel,
Since God is marching on.

(Chorus)
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Since God is marching on.

He has sounded forth the trumpet that shall never call retreat;
He is sifting out the hearts of men before His judgment-seat;
Oh, be swift, my soul, to answer Him! Be jubilant, my feet!
Our God is marching on.

(Chorus)
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Our God is marching on.

In the beauty of the lilies Christ was born across the sea,
With a glory in His bosom that transfigures you and me.
As He died to make men holy, let us die to make men free*,[14]
While God is marching on.

(Chorus)
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
While God is marching on.

Hi Keith,

I actually enjoyed that, a good beat/rythm to it and some real quirky voices made in my opinion a good
arragment and performance of that tune.

The group Practical Organ and Keyboard Players was formed to give players an opportunity to play music related to a theme and share their efforts with like minded people. It is not for the publication of previously recorded music. More information is available on the site.)

For two weeks we are looking for tunes beginning with the letter "B" but definite and indefinite articles (the, a, an) can be ignored.
