WE JUST PLAYED:
‘Tonight You Belong to Me’ is familiar from movies like ‘The Jerk’ and from amateur performances by dozens of ukelele players and duos. It was written in 1926 by Billy Rose (Fanny Brice’s ex-husband) and Lee David as a slow ballad; the now-familiar contrapuntal-sing-song arrangement originated thirty years later, when Lawrence Welk and Patience and Prudence had big hits with the song. Two versions have been added to the mix here: one by Roger Wolfe Kahn and his orchestra from 1927, and one from 1956 by Karen Chandler and Jimmy Wakely.
