kirstenanderberg Lyr Req: Rum and Coca Cola (100* d) RE: Lyr Req: Rum and Coca Cola 17 Aug 05

Wow! I had NO idea Morey Amsterdam wrote that song!! LOL! That is GREAT! I learned that song in high school in the 1970's because our high school was doing a musical review of music over the ages, and I was one fo the girls chosen to immitate the Andrew Sisters. Maxine Andrews attended the high school show (it was in LA) and gave the three of us autographed pictures somewhere. I still have it. I learned the Rum and Coca Cola song off some anthology of Andrew Sisters recordings, it was a several record set. I remember it being pinkish on the cover.

And my mother is a classically trained musician and music teacher and when we would watch the Dick Van Dyke Show, she would always say "Morey Amsterdam is a real musician tho, he really can play classical cello and he is a real musician, he is not playing one as an actor." My mom would also say that about Jerry Van Dyke when he would guest on that show and on Andy Griffith Show. My mom would always remind us that Jerry Van Dyke was actually a "real" musician. So it is funny now to find out Morey Amsterdam is a composer of pop songs! I did not know that...
