Puttin' To The Ritz

Uit lang vervlogen tijden
maar als ik zie welke show erbij hoort
en welk wereldbeeld
eigenlijk nog geheel bij de tijd........................

Harmonisch gezien een redelijk standaard lied.
Qua ritme - vooral in de eerste 4 maten en in de herhaling van maat 9 tot 13 -
een heel apart ritme in de melodie
omdat de componist 'speelt' met de klemtรณnen.
Na een week of 3 omstandig oefenen wilde het pas mijn systeem in.
Maar ja.......ik kom dan ook van origine uit de marsmuziek.

"Puttin' On the Ritz" is a song written by Irving Berlin. He wrote it in May 1927 and first published it on December 2, 1929.[1] It was registered as an unpublished song August 24, 1927 and again on July 27, 1928.[1] It was introduced by Harry Richman and chorus in the musical film Puttin' On the Ritz (1930). According to The Complete Lyrics of Irving Berlin, this was the first song in film to be sung by an interracial ensemble.[1] The title derives from the slang expression "to put on the Ritz", meaning to dress very fashionably. This expression was itself inspired by the opulent Ritz Hotel in London.

YouTube Puttin' On The Ritz

Have you seen the well-to-do?
Up and down Park Avenue
On that famous thoroughfare
With their noses in the air
High hats and arrow collars
White spats and lots of dollars
Spending every dime for a wonderful time

If you're blue and you don't know where to go to
Why don't you go where fashion sits?
Puttin' on the ritz
Different types who wear a day coat, pants with stripes
And cutaway coat, perfect fits
Puttin' on the ritz
          Dressed up like a million dollar trooper
          Tryin' hard to look like Gary Cooper (super duper)
          Come, let's mix where Rockefellers walk with sticks
          Or umbrellas in their mitts
          Puttin' on the ritz


         Tips his hat just like an English chappie
         To a lady with a wealthy pappy
         Very snappy

You'll declare it
's simply topping
To be there and hear them swapping
Smart tidbits
Puttin' on the Ritz
