KARAOKE SCENE MAGAZINE ONLINE! - OoRIKoO performs My Heart Stood Still on Karaoke Showcase - Rodgers and Hart had traveled to Paris from London to meet with the arranger Robert Russell Bennett, to try to persuade him to orchestrate the songs for their upcoming London revue, One Dam' Thing After Another. On their way back to Paris from a sightseeing expedition to Versailles, a truck came within a hair of demolishing the cab the two songwriters, along with their two female companions, were riding in. As the truck rattled by, one of the young women cried out in apparent fright, “Oh! My heart stood still!” Without losing a beat, Hart instantly urged Rodgers to make a note of her exclamation. Hart's partner faithfully jotted it down in his address book and upon coming across the note, only after they had returned to London, proceeded to construct a melody. When Rodgers played it for Hart, the lyricist loved the tune and within no time at all produced the lyric for the now classic song "My Heart Stood Still". That was 94 years ago. Good music can never die.

Jerry Hi Rik...your vocal effect is interesting in this recording. It kind seems to set apart (above) the track. Your new mixer/control board is working and I'd wager you're having fun with it! A beautiful song indeed...and your interpretation is very pleasing. Very nice...
Reply: Jerry my friend thank you and yep you are right as rain about my new board. I'm having fun and learning as I go.
