Cover Notes

Ah, the Twenties!  Can there ever have been such a decade, so endlessly discussed, pored over and analysed? Even a passing reference to this vital ten year span in our history is enough to evoke a bewildering cornucopia of visual images and impressions. We see it as a period of unparalleled hedonism, quite unlike any other, with Bright Young Things seemingly engaged in a perpetual day-and-night party, fuelled by bathtub gin and dancing wantonly to the bright, snappy rhythms of jazz.

That generation of good-timers, or what remained of it, had emerged from the First World War - the 'war to end wars' - intent on banishing any remembrance of its untold horrors, of living for now, heedless of any further thought.  Determined to overthrow the conventional mores of their day, they created new fashions styles -cloche hats, flapper dresses, plus-fours and those absurd floppy caps - and a new view of morality, too.  F. Scott Fitzgerald defined the era as the 'Jazz Age', publishing his novel 'The Great Gatsby' in 1926, a key text for the times, encapsulating the headlong but ultimately self-destructive mood of the moment, what one writer called 'the greatest, gaudiest spree in history'.

Spread A Little Happiness lyrics - New Mayfair Orchestra :

Even when the darkest clouds are in the sky
You mustn't sigh and you mustn't cry
Spread a little happiness as you go by
Please try
What's the use of worrying and feeling blue
When days are long keep on smiling through
Spread a little happiness till dreams come true
Surely you'll be wise to make the best of every blues day
Don't you realise you'll find next Monday or next Tuesday
Your golden shoes day
Even when the darkest clouds are in the sky
You mustn't sigh and you mustn't cry
Spread a little happiness as you go by
I've got a creed for every need
So easy that it must succeed
I'll set it down for you to read
So please, take heed
Keep out the gloom
Let in the sun
That's my advice for everyone
It's only once we pass this way
So day by day
Even when the darkest clouds are in the sky
You mustn't sigh and you mustn't cry
Spread a little happiness as you go by
Please try
What's the use of worrying and feeling blue
When days are long keep on smiling through
Spread a little happiness till dreams come true
Surely you'll be wise to make the best of every blues day
Don't you realise you'll find next Monday or next Tuesday
Your golden shoes day
Even when the darkest clouds are in the sky
You mustn't sigh and you mustn't cry
Spread a little happiness as you go by
Surely you'll be wise to make the best of every blues day
Don't you realize you'll find next Monday or next Tuesday
Your golden shoes day
Even when the darkest clouds are in the sky
You mustn't sigh and you mustn't cry
Spread a little happiness as you go by
