100 Years Of Johnny Mercer, Pop Poet Laureate

A celebration of 100 years of Johnny Mercer.
If anyone can’t quite place him, you’ll know him by his lyrics of the 30’s & 40’s . His career was revived in the 1960’s when Henry Mancini asked him to write the lyrics to “Moon RIver”.
His catalog is pretty incredible. “Ac-Cent-Tchu-Ate The Positive”, “On the Atchison, Topeka and the Santa Fe”, “One for My Baby (and One More for the Road)”, “Fools Rush In” and “That Old Black Magic”.
I remember many of these songs because they were in my parents record collection, but they were also standards performed in many of the TV variety shows I saw growing up.They are still great standards that you’ll hear in many a club.
This is a nod to the days when a lyricist worked with many composers and performers to craft a myriad of hits.
There’s a great NPR story here:
