On the Sunny Side of the Street

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

For the Pogues song, see Sunny Side of the Street (song)

"On the Sunny Side of the Street" is a 1930 song composed by Jimmy McHugh with lyrics by Dorothy Fields. Some authors say that Fats Waller was the composer, but he sold the rights to the song.[1] It was introduced in the Broadway musical Lew Leslie's International Revue starring Harry Richman and Gertrude Lawrence.

Richman and Ted Lewis enjoyed hit records with the song in 1930.[2]

Other notable recordings

Having become a jazz standard, it was played by Louis Armstrong, Dave Brubeck, Earl Hines, Benny Goodman, Lionel Hampton, Erroll Garner, Dizzy Gillespie, Art Tatum, James Booker, Count Basie, and Lester Young.[3] The Louis Armstrong version was recorded in the key of C major, but it has been recorded in a range of keys; Ted Lewis recorded it in D major and Ella Fitzgerald in G major.

Cover versions date as far back as 1930, when Layton & Johnstone released the song for Columbia. The song was recorded by Billie Holiday, Bing Crosby (January 21, 1946 with Lionel Hampton),[4] Dinah Washington, Ella Fitzgerald, Judy Garland, Doris Day, Brenda Lee (1961), Frankie Laine, Keely Smith, Nat King Cole, Jo Stafford with The Pied Pipers (a No. 17 hit in 1945),[5] Frank Sinatra, Willie Nelson, and Jon Batiste. Arguably the most popular arrangement was by Tommy Dorsey and the Sentimentalists which achieved chart success in 1945 reaching the No. 16 spot.[6]

In popular culture

The song was featured in the 1991 film JFK,[7] the 1995 film Father of the Bride Part II, and in an episode of the sitcom Frasier.[8]
