Leben und Wirken

Der Italoamerikaner Harry Warren zählt zu den erfolgreichsten Songwritern für Musicals und Filmmusiken; er schrieb - teilweise mit Al Dubin, Mort Dixon, Billy Rose, Mack Gordon, Leo Robin, Ira Gershwin und Johnny Mercer - unzählige Hitsongs. Zu den bekanntesten zählen seine Komposition "Chattanooga Choo Choo" (1941), die sein erster großer Erfolg war und durch das Glenn Miller Orchester populär wurde, ebenso wie "I've Gat a Gal in Kalamazoo" (1942). Weitere Hits waren "There Will Never Be Another You", "I Only Have Eyes for You", "42nd Street", "The Gold Diggers' Song (We're In The Money)", "Young and Healthy," "Lullaby of Broadway", "Serenade in Blue", "At Last", "Jeepers Creepers" und "You're Getting to Be a Habit with Me".

Warren gewann den Oscar für den besten Song für "Lullaby of Broadway" (mit Al Dubin, 1935), "You'll Never Know" (mit Mack Gordon, 1943) und für "On the Atchison, Topeka and the Santa Fe" (mit Johnny Mercer, 1946). Außerdem komponierte Warren das Broadway-Musical Shangri-La (1956).
