American Popular Song Series: Harry Warren

As part of our series on American Popular Song, we continue our profile of HARRY WARREN (1893-1981), a successful but little known songwriter who produced a number of hits during the 1930's, 40's and 50's. Today in part two of our profile, we focus on Warren’s songs of the 40’s and 50’s, including some of the most popular love ballads of the world war two years, one of Dean Martin’s biggest hits, and the theme for a tv western. Warren dreamed of writing for Broadway, but instead migrated west and became one of Hollywood's most prolific songwriters.
