LOMBARDOTELLS OF INSPIRATIONS FOR SONG HITS Lou Gehng's Winning Two- Base Hit Source of One Success, Says Maestro. AVhal is tile inspiration back nf a popular SOUR? Not a b e a u t i f u l girl or a babbling brook according to Guy Lombardo. It's far more lilcely to be a baseball game. The latter at least, Guy recalls, was back of Ishnm .lones' song success. "That's a Dream Come True." He was sitting on the edge oC his seat at the Yankee stadium one afternoon when Gehrig finally came through with t h e w i n n i n g two-bagger. "Whoops!" yelled .Tones, "that's a drcarn come true!" The resulting song by that title sold many a copy. Walter Donaldson s ot h i s hunch /or one nt the most popular songs of all time through a casual visit to a toy store. According to Lombardo, Songwriter Donaldson's attention was cap- lured by a tiny music box. On opening it there tinkled forlli Ihe -semblance of n tune that proved the inspiration for "My Buddy."
