I'm the Guy Who Found The Lost Chord

Album: The Best Loved Songs Of Jimmy Durante (1964)
  • "I'm the Guy Who Found The Lost Chord" was co-written by Durante and Earl K. Brent. Perhaps unwisely it was released as a single on the MGM label in 1964 backed by "It's My Noses' Birthday."
  • When he introduced this song on his BBC Radio music programme in July 2013, Desmond Carrington said it was best to remember that first and foremost Jimmy Durante was a comedian, and that it would have been better if not only the chord but the song had been not simply lost but forgotten. Durante performed this in the 1947 film This Time For Keeps. >>
