Siri Vik: Do I Move You?
Gus Kahn
(yyyy-yyyy)
Immigrating to Chicago with his German Jewish family in 1900, Gus Kahn got his start as a lyricist in vaudeville before moving into Tin Pan Alley, Broadway, and, finally and notably, Hollywood. He wrote with numerous composers, including Egberet Van Alstyne, Isham Jones, Ted Fio Rito, Vincet Youmans, George Gershwin, and Jerome Kern, although his primary collaborator was Walter Donaldson.
Notable among his many solid contributions to the Classic Songbook are "Memories", "I'll See You In My Dreams", "Whoopee!", "My Buddy", "Pretty Baby", "I'll See You In My Dreams", "Carioca", and "It Had To Be You".
