  2. I don't know if anyone's recommended this one yet (I apologise if this is a repeat), but one of my favourites from the Gilded Age is Irving Berlin's 1911 hit, "Everybody's Doing it Now".

    As performed by the famous Edwardian-style chamber-music group, I Salonisti:

    Famously, or unfortunately as you perceive it, these chaps portrayed the Wallce Hartley Quintet in James Cameron's "Titanic" film in 1997.

  17. Billy Murray -- Then They Start The Victrola (1914)

    [​IMG]



    I know a couple in full dress and gown
    Who used to go the parties in town
    But he got jealous of all of the fellows
    She looked so pretty, they kept crowding around
    He said with envy, "I'll turn them all green."
    He went and bought her a Victor machine
    With that Victrola home they never have to roam
    Cause he gets her all alone

    Then they start the Victrola, the little Victrola
    And up comes the rug from the floor
    At no more parties are they to be found
    He likes to have her when no one's around
    That's why he bought a Victrola, the little Victrola
    They never go out anymore
    And after dancing she's all out of breath
    He loves to take her and hug her to death
    Then they start the Victrola, the little Victrola
    And go dancing around the floor

    Sometimes he doesn't go home until three
    She sits there waiting as mad as can be
    Then grabs his collar and starts in to holler
    "Guess you're forgetting that you're no longer free"
    She says, "Now dearie, you're wasting your life."
    "Cut out that innocent look in your eyes"
    Just like a silly goose he hasn't one excuse
    Then they both say, "What's the use?"

    Then they start the Victrola, the little Victrola
    And up comes the rug from the floor
    At no more parties are they to be found
    He likes to have her when no one's around
    That's why he bought a Victrola, the little Victrola
    They never go out anymore
    And after dancing she's all out of breath
    He loves to take her and hug her to death
    Then they start the Victrola, the little Victrola
    And go dancing around the floor
