HAL BOYLE'S COLUMN 'Imported' Songs? Many Top Tunes Have Foreign Origins By Grorce Tuckrr (for till Boyle) NEW YORK. (A'i— 1 am always surprised when someone says, "Is ihal ft foreign song? I never knew \\'c importer* songs." Believe me, music publishers know ill about foreign songs. Tile money llicy earn jingles like lire brook that never done. Perhaps I cau tell you why. The origin or popular songs ignores political labels. By any other iiic a rose Is as .sweet. The 60 or 10 thousand songs we copyright every yea 1 hasn't cut down tlie rush of hits from Prance, Italy, Czechoslovakia. Britain and South America.

His stage name in the United States was "Don Delbert," and Captain KoonU produced in evidence a Social Security made out to that name in 1937. It gave Hill's home address as 863 North 25th Street Philadelphia. Hill said he was arrested because "a woman turned me in." "She was a girl from London who liad taken a fancy to me," he said "When I took a fancy to someone else she went to tlie police." The public Is funny. It plays around with many SOUKS but has ove affairs with only a few. These mate Ihe top tune polls. And on every such list for 10 or 20 years we've lad visitors from overseas. The smash tunes in this lime include "South of the Border," "Fre- nesl," "Isle of Capri," "Beer Barrel Polka," "Moonlight Madonna," •Valencia," "1 Kiss Your Hand, Madame." "Lili Marlenc," "Malague" "Galway Bay," "Siboncy," "Bella, Bella, Marie," and "Song of Long Ago"—all bell ringers from abroad. If you examine the current top ten you will find songs from England, Switzerland, and Ireland. "Cruising down the River," Is from two old maids in England, "Forever and Ever," is adapted from the German "Fly With Me to the Fatherland." "Galway Bay" is the product of a professor at the University of Dublin. The French, who spawned such International favorites as "A Little Love, a Little Kiss" and "Madelon," recently gave us "La Vie en Rose." re-titled "You're Too Dangerous, Cherie." Edith Piaf, Its composer-, ts also responsible for a Swiss tune "Les Trois Cloches," which Amerl- cam know u "WhU» th» Anttlui Was Ringing." An old Russian waltz became the basis of "Tlie Loveliness of You." If "Be Mine" seems familiar, H goes back to the Spanish "La Paloma." Artie Shaw discovered "Frenesl" and "Addis, Marqiiltu Linda" In Mexico. "Siboney" and "Malaguc- na" came from Cuba. The Czechs had a song they called 'Capri rishermcn." An American took it to Berlin, where an Englishman-wrote new lyrics for It. Another American put In an Italian movie and that's why il's known In this country as, "Bella, Bella, Marie." "Symphony" was a French song picked up by an American GI during Ihe war, and you are familiar with what happened to the German 'Lill Marlene." Another source of hit tunes Is the manuscripts of olti musters. Lifting their stuff Is culled raiding the classics. For instance, "Till the End ol Time" came straight from Chopin's "Polonaise"; "Our l^>vc" is one of Tschaikowslcy's "Romeo and Juliet Overture"; "My Reverie" is from Dfbussy; "You Are My Song of ivo" is Shubert's Unfinished Sym- >hony; and "The Tilings. You Left n My Heart" Is Drlgo's ''Serenade." There are others. The answer to why so many Euro- lean sungs became hits Is because heir melodies run around your brain like pretty girls. And we are i nation that believes In romance. /tool-Out Female' Fire-Eater Convicted As Deserter from Air Force arrested nl Newcastle last April 6.
