Som da Sexta - Irving Berlin

Neste dia, em 1888, nascia, na Bielorrússia, Irving Berlin.

"Irving Berlin was a Russian Jew. But rather thank think, talk or write about his Russian Jewishness, he excelled at writing American tunes, with catchy upbeat narrative verse, for musical self-celebration: something he did much better than most native-born Americans."

Tony Judt, em Thinking the Twentieth Century.
