    I'm hoping we haven't done this before. I looked but didn't see it. :)

    The five questions with W, are Who, What, Why, When and Where and the H is How.
    Any songs having one of these words or any form of the word in the title or lyrics.

    "Who Stole My Heart Away" Written by Jerome Kern for the musical 'Sunny'. Sung by Judy Garland and others.

    "What Are You Doing the Rest of Your Life" Sung by Frank Sinatra/Barbra Streisand.

    Sounds like what they teach in journalism school. Cool idea, GB.

    Oh Where, Oh Where Has My Little Dog Gone?

    Who's Your Little Who-zis? Novelty tune from a long time ago. Yes, you can
    hear it on Youtube.

    What Shall We Do With a Drunken Sailor?

    Why Do I Love You? From Jerome Kern's Showboat.

    When the Red, Red Robin Comes Bob-bob-bobbing Along.

    How Ya Gonna Keep 'em Down On The Farm, after they've seen Paree?

    Hi Kids,

    GB, we used to sing "Tell Me Why" at Bible Camp when I was a kid.
    Never heard of "Who Let The Dogs Out", Soul.

    Where Did You Get That Hat? You can hear Stanley Holloway sing this
    on Youtube. Stanley played Julie Andrews' father in My Fair Lady. And
    Gene Kelly sings a similar song on Youtube: The Hat My Dear Old Father Wore.

    How Can You Buy Killarney. Another Irish song.

    How many roads can a man walk down from Blowing in the Wind. Bob Dylan.
    Another show biz success from Minnesota.

    Who Stole My Heart Away sung by Judy Garland.

    How Deep is the Ocean by Irving Berlin.

    When My Baby Smiles At Me. The name of a song and also a movie from the 40s
    starring Betty Grable. Am currently reading her biography. Saw her on stage in
    Hello Dolly in the 60s. Still looked fabulous.

    Good songs Rock and Soul, I was trying to think of How Deep is the Ocean but it was apparently too deep for me to remember. :)

    The old songs are always so pretty. They keep me humming. GB

    HI GB, Yes, I try to post good songs rather than ones that are "questionable".
    HaHa! I had to sign in twice today before I was allowed to post. Same thing
    happened yesterday. I wonder what goes wrong with the process.

    Here are some more. What is this Thing Called Love by the old master Cole
    Porter. Cole was like Noel Coward. They both wrote the words and the
    music. Both born in the 1890s, and their names rhyme. It can't be a
    mere kawinkydink.

    Noel wrote Has Anybody Seen Our Ship. You can see Julie Andrews and Daniel
    Massey sing it on Youtube. Julie was playing Gertrude Lawrence. Daniel
    was playing Noel Coward. The movie was "Star" which was not a success, but
    had some great musical numbers in it.

    Daniel Massey was the son of actor Raymond Massey and the godson of
    Noel Coward. Search Youtube for "Julie Andrews in Star. The sound
    of a legend."

    Hope you have the bestest day possible.

    Rock, I remember Raymond Massey but not his son Daniel. I'm going to look up that movie, 'Star'. I do love Julie Andrews' voice.

    Speaking of voices, my favorite female singer in a Broadway show has to be Sarah Brightman. What a lovely voice. Did you ever see her in a musical on stage? I would have liked to have seen 'Phantom'. GB

    You didn't miss anything on never having heard of that Rock :p
    I posted some 'modern' day songs...

    Though when looking them up they DID get a grammy award for it in 2000 for best dance record...

    Somehow this doesn't make me want to dance :p It however DOES want to make me let the dogs out :D

    Hi everybody!

    I found a few songs for this category! :) Great thread, GB!

    WHERE THE BOYS ARE, Connie Francis, 1961

    "Where the boys are, someone waits for me
    A smilin' face, a warm embrace, two arms to hold me tenderly"

    HOW COULD YOU BELIEVE ME ..., Fred Astaire & Jane Powell, ROYAL WEDDING, 1951

    "Fred: How could you believe me when I said I love you
    When you know I've been a liar all my life
    Jane: You've had that reputation since you was a youth
    Fred: You must have been insane to think I'd tell you the truth"

    DA DOO RON RON (WHEN HE WALKED ME HOME), the Crystals, 1963

    "I met him on a Monday and my heart stood still
    Da doo ron ron ron, da doo ron ron
    Somebody told me that his name was Bill
    Da doo ron ron ron, da doo ron ron
    Yes, my heart stood still
    Yes, his name was Bill
    And when he walked me home
    Da doo ron ron ron, da doo ron ron"

    Talk to y'all later! Hugs, Diane

    How Much is that Doggie in the Window? A big hit for Patti Page in the
    days of my yute. Written by Bob Merrill who wrote other tunes like
    Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and Sparrow in the Treetop. Guy Mitchell
    recorded several of his songs. Merrill also wrote some Broadway shows
    including "Carnival" from whence cometh 'Love Makes the World Go Round'.

    What a Wonderful World.

    When the Blue of the Night Meets the Gold of the Day. Bing Crosby's
    theme song.

    When Evening Shadows Fall, a Jimmie Rodgers song.

    Well, shucks a rooty. Just noticed Soul already posted the Doggie song. Guess
    I shoulda read this Page more carefully.

    Rock, I hadn't thought of that Guy Mitchell song in many years, "Sparrow in a Treetop". We used to sing that when we were kids. Is the Pittsburgh Pa song the one that says, "there's a pawn shop, on a corner, in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania" ?
