2.   Zequinha Abreu  -  Tico-Tico no fuba

Abreu, Zequinha


"Tico-Tico no fubá" is the title of a renowned Brazilian choro song composed by Zequinha de Abreu in 1917. Its original title was "Tico-Tico no Farelo," but since Brazilian guitarist Américo Jacomino Canhoto (1889–1928) had a work with the same title, Abreu's work was given its present name in 1931. "Fubá" is a type of maize flour and "tico-tico" is the name of a bird, the rufous-collared sparrow (Zonotrichia capensis). Hence, "tico-tico no fubá" means "sparrow in the cornmeal."

4.   Jack Judge  -  It's a Long, Long Way to Tipperary

Judge, Jack


"It's a Long Way to Tipperary" is a British music hall song co-written by Jack Judge and Henry James "Harry" Williams. Although there has been a long-standing controversy over authorship. It was originally penned as a ballad, it was the publisher, Bert Feldman, who suggested it should become a marching song. It became popular among soldiers in the First World War and is remembered as a song of that war.

5.   Joseph M. Daly  -  Chicken Reel

Daly, Joseph M.


"Chicken Reel" was composed and published in 1910 by Joseph M. Daly (1883–1968). It is probably one of the best-known poultry-related folk tunes. It is frequently found in early animated cartoons as a catchy tune used to represent farmyard activity, or a gathering of fowl. Originally composed as a novelty song, it has since passed into modern folk tradition, normally played without words. It was popularly recorded by Les Paul, his performances whimsically mimicking chicken sounds on his guitar.
