Harry Tobias Biography

  • Profession: Songwriter
  • Born: Jan 1, 1895
  • Died: Dec 15, 1994

The songs "Sail Along, Silv'ry Moon," "Go to Sleepy Little Baby," "Wait for Me, Mary" and "Zei Gezunt" all have one thing in common. All of the lyrics were penned by the great Tin Pan Alley lyricist Harry Tobias. The son of Russian-Jewish immigrants, the New York City-born Tobias was 16 when he wrote his first song, "National Sport," to pay homage to his baseball hero Ty Cobb. Later he and his brothers [[Performer~P140457~Henry~henry]] and [[Performer~P114250~Charlie Tobias~charlestobias]] would team up to write "Miss You," a tune that became a hit for [[Performer~P72689~Rudy Vallee~rudyvallee]] in 1929. After moving to Los Angeles, Harry Tobias wrote "At Your Command" for [[Performer~P15874~Bing Crosby~bingcrosby]] and remained with the famed crooner until the end of the 1940s. In 1983, Tobias was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi
