For Me And My Gal

by

Edgar Leslie



Songfacts®:  You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.

Although it was not his first hit, "For Me And My Gal" can't have done Edgar Leslie's reputation any harm. The lyricist who a decade later would go on to co-write the massive hit "Among My Souvenirs" with Englishman Horatio Nicholls, penned the lyrics with E. Ray Goetz; the music was composed by George W. Meyer, and the song was published by Waterson, Berlin & Snyder of New York in 1917 with singer Carrie Lillie on the front cover. This is though a song that works best with a male vocal; a contemporary recording was made by Billy Murray, but it was not until 1942 that the name was hijacked for a musical in which it was performed by Gene Kelly and Judy Garland.

JJ talks about The Stranglers' signature sound - keyboard and bass - which isn't your typical strain of punk rock.

His song "Into The Night" is one of the most-played of all time. For Benny, it took him to hell and back.

"London Bridge," "Ring Around the Rosie" and "It's Raining, It's Pouring" are just a few examples of shockingly morbid children's songs.
