In the years of the greatly popular radio program Your Hit Parade, between 1935 and 1950, forty-two songs by Harry Warren were placed in the coveted top ten. The song writer next best represented was Irving Berlin with thirty-three songs.
More prolific than George Gershwin (who died at 38), more popular than Stephen Sondheim and esteemed among musicians of all genres. Collectively, his catalogue of songs reads like a treasury of classics from American musical theater's golden age.
Harold Arlen wrote some of the greatest hits from the '30s and '40s, including the entire score to the classic movie, The Wizard of Oz.
