[Dixielandjazz] Songs Played in Different Meters

Although written as a waltz,  "Who's Sorry Now" is almost always played in 4
these days.  Another waltz now done in 4 is "Let Me Call You Sweetheart",
although I often do the verse in 3/4 and then jazz the chorus.  Another tune
where this works well is " I Wonder Who's Kissing Her Now."  The words to
the verse are so great but are hardly ever sung.

Two songs that come to mind that can be played in 3/4 or 4/4 are: "It's a
Sin to Tell A Lie," and "Take Me Out to the Ball Game." I'm sure there are
many others.

When I'm playing a ball game function with my Dixie Barons,  I have to
remember to do a 4/4 intro, rather than a 3/4. I have started it wrong in
the past, and have had to stop the band and start over.
