Up in the air…

August 24, 2010

At a city-wide garage sale recently, I acquired a stash of incomplete sheet music from the 10’s and 20’s – for FREE. Ah, my favorite price. Some of them have absolutely amazing cover art, influenced by Art Deco and its contemporaries. But the best part has been the titles. Some of them are an absolute riot. In coming Vintage Finds posts, I’ll be sharing my favorites with you.

Up first, a promise to our boys in uniform.

"Wait Tilll You Get Them Up in the Air, Boys" 1919

And you thought texting while driving was distracting. I’m not sure the one in back is too into it.

And for our more aggressive/possessive soldiers, a warning to the gal left behind:

"Your Lips are No Man's Land But Mine" 1918

You’re going to love the next batch.

    Who gave Jeff Corwin that gun? I’m betting he kills a few monkeys.

      Is that what they mean by “The Jeff Corwin Experience?” Or is that more along the lines of “Extreme Cuisine?” It would definitely make him “King of the Jungle.” [Jeff Corwin filmography courtesy of Wikipedia.]
