Description:Originally written for the film 'Youth on Parade' by the prolific team of Jule Styne & Sammy Cahn, this tune became a huge hit for Helen Forrest and the Harry James Orchestra.HJ recorded the chart in 1942 and 1955. Ours is a fusion of these two, mostly drawn drawn the 42, with touches of 55. HJ's 1st chorus solo is written out in full (on the 1st Trumpet part) and we have scored the string lines behind the vocal chorus back into the Sax section. Helen Forrest's vocal is written out as-sung too, and the vocal key is G.
