About Something to Remember You By

"Something to Remember You By" is a song about nostalgia written by Arthur Schwartz and Howard Dietz in 1930. "Something to Remember You By" was introduced in the musical revue "Three's a Crowd" which played on Broadway at the Selwyn Theatre, October 15, 1930 to June 6, 1931. "Three's a Crowd" starred Clifton Webb and Fred Allen and was produced by Max Gordon. It also featured Libby Holman; who introduced "Something to Remember You By" as well as the Johnny Green and Edward Heyman song "Body and Soul". Ms Holman was the first to record "Something to Remember You By" in September 1930 on the Brunswick label. The song was also recorded by Helen Morgan on September 12, 1930 for Victor (with the B side being "Body and Soul"). That same year an orchestral version was recorded by Tommy Christian and his Orchestra with vocal by Jack Arthur. Later recordings were made by Vera Lynn, Jo Stafford, Irene Kral, and many others. Bing Crosby recorded the song in 1975 for his album At My Time of Life.

Oh, give me something to remember you by
When you are far away from me
Just a little something, meaning love cannot die
No matter where you chance to be

So I'll pray for you, night and day for you
It will see me through like a charm 'til you return
So give me something I can remember you by
When you are far away from me

So I'll pray for you, every single day for you
It will see me through like a charm until you return
Give me something, something to remember you by
When you are far away from me

She was admired by both critics and the listening public for the purity of her voice and was considered one of the most versatile vocalists of the era. Her 1952 song "You Belong to Me" topped the charts in the United States and United Kingdom, and made her the first woman to have a No 1 on the UK Singles Chart. She is also the winner of a 1961 Grammy Award for an album of comedic interpretations of popular songs produced with her husband, Paul Weston. more »
