Music Monday with Tommy Dorsey Ochi Tchornya
So The other night I was watching My Man Godfrey and noticed one of the characters was playing Ochi Tchornya. I remembered the song from Idiot's Delight with Norma Shearer and Clark Gable. Then some of the people I was tweeting about it with remembered it from the music box in Shop Around the Corner. I know we are uber classic film geeks.
We started wondering if all these 1930's film used the song because it was a hit of the time. I still don't really know, but one of my fellow classic film fiends @TheRedan3553 ,on twitter, found this Tommy Dorsey recording on Youtube.
Enjoy! I love the clarinet solo.
