Difference (from prior major revision) (no other diffs)
'But my sentimental melody... / will ring in your ears... / |
bringing a tear to your eye / Goodbye'
My Sentimental Melody is another song which is literally (almost) a song about a song (cf. The Way You Say Good-Night, also sung by LD Beghtol). In this case the love song is an instrument of revenge. It works after, and because, the singer has gone.
The song is driven by a fan organ, the electric motor of which can be heard at the beginning and end of the song.
Apparently the song was written ten years before 69 Love Songs was released.
LD Beghtol, who sings the song, writes:
American composer Aaron Copland also wrote a piano piece called Sentimental Melody (Slow Dance) in 1926 [details].
