Stock Market Crash of 1929 Started 90 Years Ago This Week

Postby RalphHepola » Fri Oct 25, 2019 9:27 am

The Stock Market Crash of 1929 started 90 years ago this week; actually a four-day collapse of stock prices and the worst decline in U.S. history. Just a matter of months later, Jimmy McHugh and Dorothy Fields wrote one of the most optimistic songs ever, "On the Sunny Side of the Street". Here’s our traditional jazz rendition including the rarely-heard verse to the song (right at the beginning). Teri Parker-Brown, vocals; Chris Olson, guitar; Ralph Hepola, sousaphone.

That's a great verse... 8)
...and I've always enjoyed the changes to that song (and how they frame the lyrics)...with the very second measure moving to a very "bright" chord: V7 of VI...but then avoiding the "sad" VI chord and moving "UP" again to a IV chord. 8)

GREAT playing, there, Mr. Ralph! :tuba:

=============================================

There are many clever depression-related songs from the 30's... 8)

' funny how this one was written in 1902 and recorded by Jolson (sure: others as well, but...) in 1928 (but, yes, re-recorded in 1933).

Hobo, you keep busy when they throw away

Hobo, you've no time to shirk.
You're busy keeping far away from work.

:lol:
yeah...
This is one of those songs that features - not only a verse and a chorus, but - also a BRIDGE (which feature the lyrics quoted above).

Another example of a song with a "bridge"...?? (yeah...and an "intro")
Sam & Dave's (Memphis recorded) "Soul Man" (1967)
(I repaired the trumpet you hear in this recording, just fwiw.)

Here's the "Soul Man" bridge (and modulation)

Yes, I know it's a clichéd song, but I think it's a little masterpiece:

That song defined the Depression, and that whole era.

My favorite line:

"Half a million boots went sloggin' through hell
And I was the kid with the drum"

THAT'S poetry!

a song about Hitler - recorded in England by a crooner (the same one who sang the song heard at the end of the movie, "The Shining").
Sadly, this singer was killed in London by a Nazi parachute bomb a week after recording this.
