You Brought a New Kind of Love to Me

You Brought a New Kind of Love to Me—S. Fain/P. Norman/I. Kahal, 1930 (Recorded January 20, 2012) This fine Sammy Fain number was introduced to the world when Maurice Chevalier sang it to Claudette Colbert in the 1930 film, The Big Pond. In the 1931 Marx Brothers flick, Monkey Business, each sibling—Zeppo, Chico, and Groucho—tries in his turn to fake out a customs agent on a ship by using Chevalier’s stolen passport and singing a few bars of this tune mimicked in Chevalier’s style, only to be ejected one at a time by the official. Finally, Harpo, with a hidden record player strapped to his back, hilariously mimes Chevalier, and havoc ensues.

Here, I play the Epiphone banjo uke, which happens to have been built probably 5-7 years before this tune was written. The lead ukulele work during the break is with the Earnest La Paula, and natch, I whistle some. Hope you enjoy it!
