Glow Worm  Written in 1902 by Paul Lincke as "Gluhwurmchen,"  this  song was made very  popular in the 30's by Lester Lanin and revived  in the 40's by Spike Jones & his "City Slickers." Johnny Mercer,  who wrote new lyrics, and the Mills Brothers recorded  new vocal  versions in 1952.  Jo Ann Castle also recorded it on piano in a fantistic "ragtime" rhythm. The Boston Pops Orchestra had a world wide release. 

Gonna Find Me A Bluebird   A Rather catchy little tune written and performed by Marvin Rainwater in 1957. Several other country stars also recorded it and Frank Ifield (Born in Coventry, England and raised in Australia)  released the song in the early 60's. Frank's big hit was "I remember You" which he yodeled.

Little White Cloud That Cried  One of Johnny Ray's biggest hits rising to number two in 1951.  Probably only because it was on the flip side of "Cry" which was number one for 11 weeks, it might also have reached the very top.  This sequence was done especially for "Jan"  Check out the great job she did using this MIDI at:

Sentimental  Journey    From the big band era.  Written by Les Brown,  Bud Green and Homer Benjamin in 1945,  the Les Brown Orchestra recording soared to number 1 on the charts.  But, also in that same year,  Hal McIntyre's recording reached number 3 and the Merry Mac's rendition later in the year reached a number 4. So many other artists recorded it subsequently that space does not permit a listing here.

Sentimental Me    Written by James Cassin and & James Morehead this tune was recorded by Guy Lombardo and later by Glenn Miller about 1939. The biggest hit was by the Ames Brothers in 1950.   Elvis Presley and Gale Storm also recorded the song in the latter part of the 50's.
