For other uses, see Blue Danube (disambiguation). Waltz by Johann Strauss II. The Blue Danube, one of the oldest ed. by Carl Anton Spina. The Beautiful Blue Danube was first written as a song for a carnival choir (for bass and tenor), with rather satirical lyrics (Austria having just lost the war with Prussia). The original title was also referring to a poem about the Danube in the poet Karl Isidor Beck's hometown, Baja in Hungary, and not in Vienna. The boat travels on the waves so softly, quiet is the night, love watching only the sailor whispers in the lover's ear, that his heart long ago she owned. O Heaven, have mercy on the loving couple, protect them from danger there forever! Now they pass on in blissful repose, Boat, sail always on!
Somewhere over the rainbow. Skies are blue, And the dreams that you dare to dream. Someday I'll wish upon a star. And wake up where the clouds are far. Behind me. Where troubles melt like lemon drops. Away above the chimney tops. That's where you'll find me. Somewhere over the rainbow. Bluebirds fly. Birds fly over the rainbow. Why then, oh why can't I? If happy little bluebirds fly.
The Blue Danube is the common English title of An der schönen blauen Donau, Op. 314, a waltz by the Austrian composer Johann Strauss II, composed in 1866. Originally performed 15 February 1867 at a concert of theWiener Männergesangsverein (Vienna Men's Choral Association), it has been one of the most consistently popular pieces of music in the classical repertoire.
Each stanza ends with the line: ‘By the Danube, beautiful blue Danube’. It gave him the inspiration and the title for his new work – although the Danube could never be described as blue and, at the time the waltz was written, it did not flow through Vienna. Twenty-three years later, Franz von Gernerth, a member of the Austrian Supreme Court, composed a more dignified text for the melodies of the waltz: "Donau, so blau, so blau" ("Danube, so blue, so blue").
Waves of the Danube" (Romanian: Valurile Dunării; Serbian: Дунавски валови/Dunavski valovi; German: Donauwellen; French: Flots du Danube; Russian: Дунайские Волны) is a waltz composed by Ion Ivanovici in 1880, and is one of the most famous Romanian tunes in the world. In the United States, it is frequently referred to as "The Anniversary Song", a title given by Al Jolson when he and Saul Chaplin released an adaptation of the song in 1946
The Sailor’ hornpipe. Also known as The College, Jack’s The Lad, Popeye’s. There are 4 recordings of a tune by this name. I usually hear this tune (see it written) in the key of Bb maj. You can’t seem to submit a tune in that key on thesession. org, so I transposed it into Dmaj, the second-most common key for this tune. A lot of people also know this song as Sailor’s Hornpipe, or the theme from the Popeye cartoons. This tune was widely played prior to 1800, but continues to be popular. Posted by Grack 15 years ago. The Sailor’s. There appears to be an error in the first bar of the second half - shouldn’t it be FAdA FAdA? Also, this tune is a version of Jack’s The Lad which is already on the database
