Heart And Soul Duet In Sepia

MAIN FEATURE ON THE MAIN HOMEPAGE OF FINE ART AMERICA
Casual indoor vertical photograph of two teen siblings in Texas, USA, playing their rendition of Hoagy Carmichael’s musical composition, “Heart and Soul.” I remember playing this song on the piano with friends, literally for hours. In those days, I paid no attention to the lyrics, but simply thought of the song as a fun, upbeat duet, which is how it’s depicted here. I hope it brings back good memories for you.
"Heart and Soul" is a popular song composed by Hoagy Carmichael with lyrics by Frank Loesser. In 1938, it was performed by Larry Clinton and his orchestra with vocals by Bea Wain. In 1939, three versions reached the music charts: Larry Clinton (No. 1), Eddy Duchin (No. 12), and Al Donahue (No. 16). A version by The Four Aces with the Jack Pleis Orchestra reached No. 11 in 1952, and a version by Johnny Maddox reached No. 57 in 1956. In 1961, The Cleftones version reached No. 18 and the one by Jan and Dean reached No. 25. "Play That Song," a single by the band Train that incorporates portions of the melody, reached No. 41 in 2016. (Source: website)
