How Music Changed

    In the post-war years, the Great American Songbook carried on much as it had before the war, with a rarefied group of incredibly intelligent lyricists and songsmiths creating clever new ways to address topics that are as old as time itself.

    Like most of our previous shows dedicated to the Great American Songbook, this show is dominated by first-class love songs.

    Featured tracks include:

    On the Atchison, Topeka and the Santa Fe – Johnny Mercer

    Come Rain or Come Shine – James Brown

    There’s No Business Like Show Business – Ethel Merman

    This Heart of Mine – Sarah Vaughan

    Almost Like Being in Love – Prince Buster

    But Beautiful – Tony Bennett

    If I Loved You – Chad and Jeremy

    You’ll Never Walk Alone – Gerry and the Pacemakers

    Time after Time – Dinah Washington

    On a Slow Boat to China – Kay Kaiser & his Orchestra
