While i was checking about Jimmy McHugh i came across a wheen o' stuff written by Harry Warren.
Here is a wee bit trivia ye might not know.
The World's First Gold Record

The World's First "Gold Record" (actually pressed onto a gold disc) was presented to Glenn Miller by RCA Records in 1941, after his recording of Harry's "Chattanooga Choo Choo" sold 1.2 million records.

Glenn Miller's recordings of "At Last", "I Know Why, (and so do you)"," I Wish I Knew", "Devil May Care", "Serenade in Blue", "I've Got a Gal in Kalamazoo", and "People like You and Me" --all composed by Harry-- helped considerably in catapulting Miller's band to the top of the "Big Bands" of the forties.
