How Am I to Know?

Postby justjack » Fri Sep 26, 2003 6:49 am

I've completely fallen for this tune off Froggy Plays in London Town, but haven't been able to find the music for it anywhere. It's credited to Jack King and Dorothy Parker (the Dorothy Parker? I don't know.); anyone know where I might find it? I'll hit the library soon if anyone else wants it.

Well, yeah, but I'm lazy. Sigh. It is a rainy day out here; I guess a little work won't hurt. I do still want to know about Dorothy, though.

I havent found too much yet except a few minor blurbs about her on the web, but here is something from Dorothy Parker the author.

"As Dorothy Parker once said to her boyfriend 'Fair the well'".......

I'm afraid that's as much as I know about her, thanks to Cole Porter (my favorite!) :)

From Buddy Bregman, reminiscing about making the Cole Porter album with Ella:

ELLA: (SINGING) AS DOROTHY PARKER ONCE SAID, TO HER BOYFRIEND... FARE THEE WELL ...Who's Dorothy Parker?
BUDDY: A reviewer of films and theatre and…news…
ELLA: Never heard of her.
BUDDY: Cole Porter and I have.
ELLA: (SINGING) AS COLUMBUS ANNOUNCED WHEN HE KNEW HE WAS BOUNCED IT WAS SWELL, ISABELL, SWELL... Okay, I know who Columbus is, but who the heck is Isabel?
BUDDY: Queen Isabella of Spain… she financed Columbus… and that's how he discovered Am…
ELLA: (SINGING PISSED OFF) AS ABELARD SAID TO HELOISE DON'T FORGET TO DROP A LINE TO ME PLEASE...Okay, okay, I'll bet even you don't know who…
BUDDY: A sorta priest who secretly married a holy man's daughter and was banished from Paris.
ELLA (SINGING; FUROUS) AS JULIET CRIED IN HER ROMEO'S EAR ROMEO... WHY NOT FACE THE FACT MY DEAR?... Yeah, yeah, I know, Shakespeare!
