Update: April 10 is now only 3 sleeps away, but there has been a change in timing. “It” will now run from 12:00am EST (GMT – 5hrs), and not 12:00am MST as originally noted, and will be repeated through to midnight EST.
Not too sure how this happened. I was born in 1946 … and this song was released in 1948, but I loved it! Of course I could have been very receptive to songs at the age of two, but more likely it was because my Mum owned it on an old 78rpm record. I started to play my Mum and Dad’s records quite early, as soon as I could figure out how to work our wind up record player (probably mid 1950’s). Obviously it made an impact because I have never forgotten it.
“Life Gets Tedious” has its place in my memories of that time in my life, along with Brahm’s Violin Concerto, Gilbert & Sullivan’s “The Mikado” and various Sibelius pieces. This was soon to be expanded by the late 1950’s popular music … and numerous more violin concertos. Enjoy!
