I'd Like To Find The Guy That Wrote The Stein Song

  • songfacts ®
  • This is a witty response to the Rudy Vallée hit "Stein Song", which was the number one song in America for eight weeks in 1930. It was recorded on Victor by vocalist Harry McDaniel with Johnny Johnson and his Orchestra; Johnson shared the writing credits. It may not have been as big a hit as the original, but it was published as far afield as Sydney, Australia, by J. Albert & Son. >>
