Humoresque-athon

Humoresque

 

A happy tune it 

Makes me smile

But lyrics ruin it

Just because you can don’t mean you should

Every hack

Would take a whack 

 At writing words to Dvorak

And just like mine they’re not so good…

Nine lyricists including Al Dubin (Lullaby of Broadway) and Mitchell Parish (Stardust) tried their hand at gilding Dvorak’s lily of a tune back in the day. I hooked them together to create a “Humoresque-athon” – medley of mirth.  Who do you think best captured the spirit of the old Czech master?
