Play A Simple Melody

 

"Play A Simple Melody" is a song from the 1914 musical, “Watch Your Step”; the first stage musical that Berlin wrote. It is one of the few true examples of counterpoint in American popular music. First a "simple melody" plays alone; this is then followed by a jaunty contrasting melody, and finally, the two melodies play together, each with independent lyrics.


Another example of this genre is “(I wonder why) You’re Just in Love”, also available for Brass Band from Wobbleco Music.
