Remember


"Melody In A Minor" was a composition composed by Charles G. Dawes in 1912, a man who would later go on to become Vice-President of the United States of America under Calvin Coolidge.


In 1951, a lawyer by the name of Carl Sigman (a future Songwriter's Hall of Fame inductee)  wrote some words to the melody and a young man from Richmond, Virginia recorded the song. The young man's name was Tommy Edwards and the recording reached #18 on the charts.  Several years later, with a different arrangement, the song became a Rock/Pop classic.  That song was "It's All in the Game."




Tommy Edwards (February 17, 1922 – October 22, 1969)
