The song "Coquette" I just noticed sounds alot like "At Twilight".

Also I think the song "I've got a Feeling I'm Falling" sounds very similar to "Home".

Can you give your examples?

I know of others but can't think of think of any right at this second, but will share with you as I think of them.

I always thought "If I had you" and "Louisiana Fairy Tale" sound rather similar.

I seem to recall that Cab Calloway's band recorded an instrumental number called "Hot Water" which sounded very much like Ellington's "Old Man Blues".

And there must be dozens of rip-offs - under various names - of "Tiger Rag".

Calloway's "Hot Water" is the exact same as Fletcher Henderson's "Wild Party".

I've often noted that "The Mansion of Aching Hearts" (Victor 1415) is actually sung to the tune of "A Bird in a Gilded Cage."

Maybe "The Mansion of Aching Hearts" was meant as a sort of parody of the better known song. I really don't know.

And the 1924 song "In A Charleston Cabin" contains a passage which is identical to the melody of "St. James Infirmary" - which wasn't recorded until four years later!

"I'll Do My Best to Make You Happy" sounds a lot like "Just One More Chance."

The verse of Cliff Edwards' "Anything You Say" sounds just like the melody of Ben Bernie's "Swanee Shore".

Also, Gregory (and Bob too), find a picture and stick with it! wink.gif

Whenever I hear the chorus of "From Monday On" I think of "With My Guitar and You," and vice versa.

JJWI, When you find a picture, than you can stick it! That's one of the beautiful things about this message board is we can post what we want, and personalize it how we want, and as many times as we want!

And how many tunes sound like Tiger Rag? Mainly becuase they are imitations or even blatant rip-offs?

E.G. Weary Weasel, Buchanan Stomp etc etc

"I Never Saw A Better Night" (heard on Radio Dismuke, featuring George Hall and His Taft Orchestra) and "How's About It" (by Jerome and Archer Gottier) and featured on Take Two's, "Echos from the Cocoanut Grove: Phil Harris & His Orchestra 1932-3" Singing along with Phil is Leah Ray. These songs are very, very similar. biggrin.gif
