Oh Freedom (1860´s) / Sweet Freedom (1931)

Oh, Freedom - Wikipedia

O Freedom

Free Slave, The


 "OH FREEDOM" is an African-American spiritual dating from the Civil War of the 1860´s. The author is unknown.
According to oral tradition "Oh Freedom" was used as a marching song by Blacks protesting the Atlanta race riots of 1906. With changes in lyrics, it was used in the 1930´s by organizers of the Southern Tenant Farmer´s Union.
By the time of the Civil Rights Movement, "Oh Freedom" was not generally found in the repertoire of the Black Church congregations. Movement activists familiar with the song culture of the 1930´s, brought the song to the sit-ins and Freedom Rides and into the mass meeting song repertoire.
Odetta made a recording in 1956 and it became an anthem of the Civil Rights movement of the 1960's. Odetta also sang it, when Martin Luther King gave his famous "I Have a Dream" speech on August 28, 1963 in Washington, D.C., in front of nearly 250,000 civil rights supporters.

But the song was already recorded by the Nance Family in 1931, with a different title and a slightly different musical setting.

E.R. Nance was a singing-school teacher, who was living in Booneville, North Carolina. He first approached Art Satherley about recording his family at the American Record Corporation in 1930.
Few of the records from their lengthy stay in New York City were ever released, and Nance was very interested in having more of his music available on record. Now familiar with the system and having established a modest track record, Nance approached Brunswick and Gennett.
Both companies decided to take a gamble and in quick succession the Nance Family had recordings out on Brunswick and on Gennett's subsidiaries, Champion and Superior.

Boléro (1928)


"Boléro" is a one-movement orchestral piece by the French composer Maurice Ravel (1875–1937). Originally composed as a ballet commissioned by Russian actress and dancer Ida Rubinstein, the piece, which premiered in 1928, is Ravel's most famous musical composition.
The composition was a sensational success when it was premiered at the Paris Opéra on 22 November 1928, with choreography by Bronislava Nijinska and designs and scenario by Alexandre Benois. The orchestra of the Opéra was conducted by Walther Straram.

Boléro - Wikipedia

The piece was first published by the Parisian firm Durand in 1929.

See next link for complete score:

The first recording session of the "Bolero" in 1930 by the Grand Orchestre Symphonique, directed by Piero Coppola, was attended by Ravel himself.

In 1934 George Raft and Carole Lombard starred in the film Bolero, which ended with them performing a dance to the music.





Allegro Non Troppo, a sophisticated parody of Walt Disney's Fantasia directed by Bruno Bozzetto, uses "Boléro" as the theme for a segment where an entire evolutionary sequence arises on an alien planet from the residue in the bottom of a Coke bottle discarded by a visiting human astronaut.





In the 1979 movie 10, the character played by Bo Derek asks "Did you ever do it to Ravel's Bolero?", a reference to the idea that the work is a good accompaniment to lovemaking. A four-minute excerpt of Boléro is used during the subsequent sex scene.

Frank Zappa admired the piece, saying it "has one of the best melodies ever written", and performed an arrangement of it on his 1988 world tour. A reggae version of Ravel's "Boléro" is featured on his live album "The Best Band You Never Heard in Your Life".

Nintendo composer Koji_Kondo (credited as Konchan) had at first wanted to use "Boléro" as the title screen music for  The_Legend_of_Zelda_(video_game). Due to copyright issues, however, he had to scrap the idea and compose original music of his own. He wrote a new arrangement of the overworld theme within one day.



The theme was later revisited in Ocarina_of_Time's music "Bolero of Fire", which also uses the same snare drum ostinato





Japanese musician and composer Ryuichi Sakamoto reworked "Bolero" for the score of the 2002 Brian De Palma film "Femme Fatale", titled "Bolerish".

Gökvalsen (1913) / Cuckoo Waltz (1918) / Coucou ! / Kuckuckswalzer / Koekoek-Wals


The Originals © by Arnold Rypens - GÖKVALSEN

It is probably less well known that popular composer Emanuel Jonasson (1886-1956), called "Gok-Jonas", was also a military musician. His big hit number was "Gökvalsen", which has become a world success and one of the world's most played smaller pieces of music. According to a popular storytelling, he would have had the idea of ​​Gökvalsen as a musician at Gyllene Göken cinema in Stockholm in the 1910's. However, this story is contradicted by the fact that the cinema Gyllene Göken started in 1912 and that Gökvalsen was born in 1909 on Fristad Hed.
Another story is put forward by Ejnar Lyth. According to this, Gökvalsen would have been "pushed forward" on a one-piece accordion by the farmer's son Sigge Karlsson, who performed it at K 1's Christmas ball in 1912. Jonasson would have "taken over" the melody.

Livet I Finnskogarna (1915) / Mockin' Bird Hill (1950) / Adress Rosenhill (1951) / Als De Spotvogel Fluit (1951)


Mockin' Bird Hill  is a song, written in 3/4 time, by George Vaughn Horton, and perhaps best known through recordings by Patti Page, Donna Fargo, and by Les Paul and Mary Ford in 1951.

The music of "Mockin' Bird Hill" is based closely on a Swedish waltz called "Livet i Finnskogarna" ("Life in the Finnish Woods"), recorded by Karl Jularbo in 1915, which enjoyed some popularity in the U.S.

Several sources say this is a composition by Karl Jularbo (1893-1966).
Other sources say it is a composition by Herman Gellin (1895-1965).
A meeting with the Swedish STIM in 1962 resulted in an anouncement that Jularbo heard "Livet in Finnskogarna" around 1910 by a man, who had died in the meantime, and this Vals is actually a piece of Danish folkmusic.


Most likely Karl Jularbo was the first artist to make a recording of this song.

There are two Swedish songs, which use the "Mocking Bird Hill" melody. The Swedish lyrics are not a direct translation of Horton's text.
The Swedish comedian Povel Ramel wrote a Swedish-language version of the song called "Småfoglarne" (The little birds), which contained a large number of puns on birds' names. It was performed and recorded by Ramel and Martin Ljung in 1951.

"O sole mio" is a globally known Neapolitan song written in 1898. Its lyrics were written by Giovanni Capurro and the music was composed by Eduardo di Capua. There are other versions of "O sole mio" but it is usually sung in the original Neapolitan language. "O sole mio" is the Neapolitan equivalent of standard Italian "Il mio sole" and translates literally as "my sunshine".

In 1898 Eduardo Di Capua with his father, violinist of an orchestra, was in Odessa (at that time Russian Empire, now Ukraine) when the poet Giovanni Capurro asked him to compose the music for his verses "O sole mio". So, being in Odessa and looking at the Black Sea, Eduardo Di Capua composed his most famous song.

In 1899 the song was performed in Naples at the Festa di Piedigrotta, a famous annual music festival. Interestingly, the song didn’t win – it came second to another Neapolitan classic called Napule Bello. At the time, it was impossible to predict the future success the song would receive. Unfortunately, Giovanni and Eduardo didn’t make much money on royalties for the song as they had sold its publishing rights to the Bideri publishing house for a very small fee of just 25 lire.
What wasn’t known at the time was that a third author was involved. Alfredo Mazzucchi helped Eduardo write music for the song but didn’t sign the manuscript. A Torino judge eventually ruled that he be listed as a co-author to the song.

About ten years later, in 1959, while stationed in Germany with the U.S. Army, Elvis Presley heard the recording and put to tape a private version of the song.




The Neapolitan tune underwent another transformation in 1957, when Calabrian born Lou Monte released it as "Don’t Say Forever".

In 1972 in the Netherlands there was a TV commercial promoting a kaas-tosti (kind of a Grilled ham and cheese sandwich)




One of Kika Markham's more memorable television projects was Dennis Potter's "Double Dare" (1976). Few people know this was actually written around an evening spent with Kika after Potter had seen the iconic "Just One Cornetto" Gondola commercial, where Kika played the beautiful lady eating just one Cornetto.

Watch the commercial here:





In 1978 Jonathan King recorded a cover-version of the "Just One Cornetto" commercial under the alias Count Giovanni Di Regina.
