SMILE AND SHOW YOUR DIMPLE

Latest update on 03/09/2009

Artist: Sam Ash
Author: Irving Berlin
Label: Columbia
Year: 1918

Covers:

1933:

Marilyn Miller & Clifton Webb [as Easter Parade in revue As Thousands Cheer]

1939:

Guy Lombardo

1942:

Bing Crosby [in film Holiday Inn]

1942:

Harry James

1948:

Fred Astaire & Judy Garland [in film Easter Parade]

1954:

Liberace [all as Easter Parade]

So Easter Parade's melody was second hand. Irving Berlin was a recycler. When he needed an old-time sounding song for a 1930's revue, he modified the melody, but you can hear the newer song in the beginning of the chorus.
