Anniversary Song

Album: Best Of Al Jolson (1946)
  • songfacts ®
  • Lyrics
  • This is based on the song "The Waves of the Danube," which was written by the Romanian composer Ion Ivanovici. Al Jolson and the songwriter Saul Chaplin wrote it for the movie The Jolson Story. Unlike most of the songs that were in the movie, this song was not one of the songs that Jolson performed during his earlier career. It was recorded and introduced for this picture. >>
