Whispering Grass

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

"Whispering Grass (Don't Tell the Trees)" is a popular song written by Fred Fisher and his daughter Doris Fisher.[1] The song was first recorded by Erskine Hawkins & His Orchestra in 1940.[2] The Ink Spots featuring Bill Kenny also recorded it the same year.[3] A live instrumental version was played and recorded by Johnny Hodges with Duke Ellington and his orchestra in the Cristal Ballroom, Fargo, North Dakota, also in 1940.[citation needed]

"Whispering Grass" was a 1975 UK number-one single by Windsor Davies and Don Estelle.[4] Davies and Estelle were actors in the successful sitcom It Ain't Half Hot Mum. It was number one in the UK Singles Chart for three weeks from 7 June 1975.[4] The record is a comic version of The Ink Spots' 1940 recording, and was sung in character. This version of the song also peaked at number 59 in Australia.[5]

The notion of Whispering Grass extends back to Greek mythology, notably the myth of Midas.
