Memories of You
Memories of You – Goodbye Bingo. I had to say Goodbye to Bingo yesterday. Always difficult letting go. But we never forget our many memories. I thought this was a great song to remember him with. It is an old song from 1930, but has been recorded by many bands and vocalists. Memories of You” is a popular song about nostalgia with lyrics written by Andy Razaf and music composed by Eubie Blake and published in 1930. The song was introduced by singer Minto Cato in the Broadway show Lew Leslie’s Blackbirds of 1930. A 1930 version recorded by Louis Armstrong featuring Lionel Hampton is the first known use of the vibraphone in popular music. Doc Severinsen and the NBC Orchestra performed an instrumental version on the final episode of The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson, on May 22, 1992. This was also the final song on the final album Frank Sinatra recorded for Capitol Records, Point of No Return from 1962. Beautiful song. I hope you enjoy it.
