Till We Meet Again
Music: Richard A. Whiting
Lyrics: Raymond B. Eagan
Arr: Merv Rowley, 2003
Richard Whiting was a young man when he entered a music-writing contest held by a Detroit Theater. Richard wrote an
arrangement, but he was dissatisfied with his work and discarded the manuscript.
His secretary retrieved it from the trash and showed it
to their boss, publisher Jerome Remick, who submitted it
in the contest, where it won top honors. It eventually became the best-seller of sheet music in 1919. As a "war" song about a solder and his sweetheart, it joined
Lili Marlene in popularity with the Allied troops in World War I.
Whiting and his older sister Margaret continued as successful musicians for another generation,
Whiting as a composer and Margaret as a singer during the big-band era. Among Richard's
works are Japanese Sandman, Ain't We Got Fun?, On the Good Ship Lollypop
and Beyond the Blue Horizon.
This is a sentimental tear -jerker with sad lyrics, so beware.
