THE DAY THAT I MET YOU (Henry Santly / Lou Davis / Harry Richman (m & l) ) As sung by Annette Hanshaw 1925 I never will forget the thrill The day that I met you You seemed to be Just meant for me The day that I met you. Your smile, your touch Told me so much It seemed as if you knew. You guessed it right 'Twas love at sight The day that I met you. Notes: This lyric is from a test pressing at an audition in 1926 for Pathé records. (Catherine) Annette Hanshaw, an American, was a blues and jazz singer from the 1920s and early 1930s and was purportedly one of the first female jazz singers of that era. She was known as 'The Personality Girl' or later as the 'The Flapper Girl' by her followers and fit the 1920s period perfectly with her flapper style and sweet innocent-sounding voice. She often ended her songs with the cute tag "That's All" (above). See MY BLACKBIRDS ARE BLUEBIRDS NOW and LOVABLE & SWEET as other examples of her unique tag line. Some consider the later Hanshaw, a 'torch singer' along with the likes of Ruth Etting, Mildred Bailey, Jane Froman and Bebe Daniels. Strangely,she thought her abilities 'wanting' by her own standards and retired early to married life, after only 15 years in the business. Hanshaw also recorded under the names 'Gay Ellis' or 'Dot Dare' or 'Patsy Young' and a variety of other pseudonyms. (Transcribed by David Story May 2014)
