    Bob Sutton was kind enough to provide the actual data on Sunshine and Blue World, which supports my recollection except for the quartet that sang Sunshine .

      Bob Sutton was kind enough to provide the actual data on Sunshine and Blue
      World, which supports my recollection except for the quartet that sang
      "Sunshine".

      I'd be interested in the perception of either FRED or Stardust as to how they
      felt Sunshine worked for them as a contest or performance vehicle.

      << Hi, Rog! Just in case anyone actually REALLY asks you, neither "You Are My

      Sunshine" nor "It's a Blue World" or whatever the other song was, was sung

      in Nashville. "Sunshine" was sung once in KC, by Stardust. Boy, were you

      right about "Sunshine". I've never heard anyone make a silk purse out of

      that one. >>

        "Sunshine" was indeed sung in Nashville by Wabash Ave (Roger is once
        again correct!).

        "30) Wabash Avenue
        You Are My Sunshine 376 398 387"

        I remember their arrangement to be quite different from the version
        performed by FRED & Stardust.

          I know that the Greater Nassau Sweet Adelines performed this
          piece when they placed 9th in Atlanta in the Fall of 1999. The
          vocal flow and quality was the best I've ever heard them do, and
          the presentation was really effective. If ya ask me, they turned a
          bag from Wal-Mart into a Prada purse.

                      <http://parlorsongs.com/content/s/sunofparadise.htm>The Sunshine Of
                      Paradise Alley 1895



                      Music by: John W. Bratton
                      Words by: Walter H. Ford
                      Cover artist: Unattributed



                      Here we encounter one of those souls who come to us as an angel of mercy
                      and who overcomes the worst conditions to still be a positive force in
                      other people's lives. Written in 1895, at the height of the "tearjerker"
                      fad, I can't really quite decide if the song is a tearjerker or not. The
                      song carries three verses that if sung in their entirety add a tearjerker
                      flavor to the song. The second verse is noted as optional and if omitted,
                      eliminates much of the pathos and the song then becomes a bit more like a
                      "sunny" song rather than one with a sad story.



                      The song focuses on a young lady living in squalid conditions who manages
                      to always bring light to other and who is called the "sunshine of Paradise
                      Alley." As an aside, isn't it interesting that some of the worst places on
                      earth have names that belie their true nature? The second verse, which can
                      be omitted shows her bravery in helping a sick waif from sure death by
                      nursing him to health when no others dared. Of course she is much sought
                      after as a mate and in the final verse we see hope for a happy union.
                      Musically the song is typical of the period, a nice waltz song that has
                      that 1890's sound and tempo. It's a good song, not remarkable but quite
                      pleasant.



                      *John W. Bratton*, Born in Wilmington, Delaware in 1867, Bratton enjoyed
                      substantial popularity in the 1890's. . Bratton was educated in Wilmington
                      and at the Philadelphia College of Music. Early on, he was a stage
                      performer in both plays and as a singer. His primary musical activity was
                      as a composer and writer of Broadway shows in the early 20th century. Many
                      of his published songs had little circulation and popularity beyond the
                      context of his shows. Some of his most notable shows were, *Hodge Podge and
                      Company* (1900), *The Liberty Belles* (1901), *The School Girl* (1904), *Buster
                      Brown* (1908) and *The Newlyweds and Their Baby* (1909).



                      Among his most popular songs were, *I Love You In The Same Old Way, Darling
                      Sue* with lyricist Walter H. Ford in 1896, *My Sunbeam From The South, In A
                      Garden Of Faded Flowers, I Talked To God Last Night, In A Pagoda* and *The
                      Teddy Bear's Picnic*. Unfortunately, none of his songs have passed into the
                      present as lasting hits. Bratton died in 1947 in Brooklyn, NY.
