Eddie Cantor - The Man On The Flying Trapeze - Columbia Years 1922-1940 Circus



Uploaded by warholsoup100 on Jun 24, 2011

From Columbia Years 1922-1940
"The Daring Young Man on the Flying Trapeze", originally published under the title "The Flying Trapeze" and also known as "The Man on the Flying Trapeze", is a very well known 19th century popular song about a flying trapeze circus performer, Jules Léotard. The song was first published in 1867, with words written by the British lyricist and singer, George Leybourne, with music by Gaston Lyle, and arranged by Alfred Lee. The lyrics were based on the phenomenal success of trapeze artist Jules Léotard. The 3/4 time tune may have been based on Jacques Offenbach's Le Papillon, Act 2, Scene 1.
Eddie Cantor (January 31, 1892 -- October 10, 1964) was an American "illustrated song" performer, comedian, dancer, singer, actor and songwriter.
