This famous composition of David Rose’s uses lots of pizzicato strings at a fast pace, and it now connotes a carefree mid-century suburban mood. It also served as the theme of the Red Skelton Show.
"Holiday for Strings", written by Rose, is an instrumental composition best known for its use as the theme song for The Red Skelton Show for over 20 years. Written in 1942, this piece is still recognized today as a classic American composition. The pizzicato strings and soaring melodies give this composition its distinctive sound.
David Rose (1910 – 1990) was an American songwriter, composer, arranger, pianist, and orchestra leader. His most famous compositions were "Holiday for Strings”, “Poinciana" and "Calypso Melody". He also wrote music for many television series, including It's a Great Life, The Tony Martin Show, Little House on the Prairie, Highway to Heaven, Bonanza, and Highway Patrol under the pseudonym "Ray Llewellyn." Rose's work in composing music for television programs earned him four Emmys. In addition, he was musical director for The Red Skelton Show during its 21-year run on the CBS and NBC networks. He was a member of Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia, the national fraternity for men in music. He released “Our Waltz” in 1942.
Rose was married on October 8, 1938, to the actress Martha Raye. They were divorced on May 19, 1941. Rose was married for a second time, on July 28, 1941, to the actress & singer Judy Garland. Sadly, They had no children, though Garland, according to biographer Gerald Clarke, underwent at least one criminal abortion during their marriage, at the insistence of her mother, her husband, and the studio that employed her, MGM. Garland* and Rose divorced in 1944. - Wikipedia
*Garland later committed suicide in 1969 (aged 47). See who wasn’t aborted below...
Ethel Waters was born in Chester, Pennsylvania, on October 31, 1896, as a result of the rape of her teenaged African-American mother, Louise Anderson (1881–1962) (believed to have been 13 years old at the time), by John Waters - a pianist and family acquaintance from a mixed-race middle-class background. He played no role in raising Ethel. Soon after she was born, her mother married Norman Howard, a railroad worker. Ethel used the surname Howard as a child before reverting to her father's name. She was raised in poverty by her grandmother, Sally Anderson, who worked as a housemaid, and with two of her aunts and an uncle. Waters never lived in the same place for more than 15 months. She said of her difficult childhood, "I never was a child. I never was cuddled, or liked, or understood by my family."
Each one of us needs to look after the good of the people around us, asking ourselves, “How can I help?” That’s exactly what J.e.s.u.s did. He didn’t make it easy for Himself by avoiding people’s troubles, but waded right in and helped out.
