It's goodbye to Jack Hylton, as his popular website has been removed. It was one of my favourite listening websites.

My Top Three:

You're The Cream In My Coffee (1929)
In my opinion this is the definitive version of the song. In the Dennis Potter movie You're The Cream in My Coffee (1980) the dance band in the 1930s flashback scenes plays the Jack Hylton arrangement. And many of the re-creation bands such as The San Francisco Starlight Orchestra also uses the same arrangement.

Ja, Ja, Die Frau'n Sing Meine Schwache Seite (1928)

Da-Da-Da (1927)

Love Da-Da-Da

The wonderful tuba and quirky rhythm send this song to my top 20 list.


Anyone have the full lyrics?

I can only make out:

What's that tune the bands all play
every night and every day
da da da
this wonderful
da da da
and now I just can't pick my dixie babe
???
???
da da da that haunting refrain

I've been able to pick up this much of the lyrics:

What's that tune the bands all play every night and every day?
Da-Da-Da, it's wonderful, Da-Da-Da
And now I just can't make my feet behave, when I hear it now I crave
Da-Da-Da, they play it again

You'll find there's no time to sleeping, no time to eat
It keeps you in a
grind, somehow it's keeping me on my feet
Though they (?????), they don't hate me. They dance like someone gone insane
All night long it's on my brain, Da-Da-Da, that haunting refrain

Victor,

Nice work on the lyrics. I'm wondering if one of the remaining lines is:

It keeps you in a grind. ???


Thanks Ian!
That does sound about right. I think you've added a piece to the puzzle! smile.gif

3. Marching Along Together (6/8 One-Step)

Does anyone know of a Jack Hylton CD with this song on it?

I love 'em all... these were the three that h as given me the most hours of repeat listening!!

All the band parts for Jack Hyltons arrangements are in the Jack Hylton archives at Lancaster University in the UK. It would be great to hear a band of 2008 having a crack at them......... maybe there's some copyright ownership issues.
What do you think of the idea?

Derek, I can't play Jack Hylton today either. Let's hope it's just a temporary 'blip', ordinarily I have no problems.
