KARAOKE SCENE MAGAZINE ONLINE! - OoRIKoO performs These Foolish Things on Karaoke Showcase - Making our way to 1935 we find "These Foolish Things (Remind Me of You)" a standard with lyrics by Eric Maschwitz, writing under the pseudonym Holt Marvell, and music by Jack Strachey, both Englishmen. The song was not an immediate success, and Keith Prowse, Maschwitz's agent, refused to publish it, releasing the copyright to Maschwitz himself – a stroke of luck for the lyricist as the famous West Indian pianist and singer Leslie Hutchinson ("Hutch") discovered it on top of a piano in Maschwitz's office at the BBC. "Hutch" liked it and recorded it, whereupon it became a great success and was recorded by musicians all over the world. Such as Benny Goodman, Billie Holiday, Nat King Cole, Bing Crosby, Etta James, Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughn, Frank Sinatra, Bob Dylan and Rod Stewart to name but a few. Oh and James Brown WAOOOOOOOOW I Feel Good!

Cantstopsinging Hi Rik.. A new one for me but I could hear Rod Stewart singing this through your voice. This was one of your best vocally and mix, imo.. Very natural and you made the words really come alive. Joyce
Reply: Hi Joyce. Thanks so much for this awesome comment.
