Rhythm For You is a song played on Galaxy News Radio. It was written and composed by Dutch musicians Eduard "Eddy" Christiani and Frans Poptie. It performed by the Charles Brull Dance Orchestra conducted by David Johnson, a pseudonym of the Dutch conductor, Dolf van der Linden.[1]

Background[edit | edit source]

The song's first known use is in the soundtrack of the 1953 Swedish drama film Vi tre debutera or We Three Debutantes.[2]

However, the reverse of the same phonograph record features the song "Yankee Doodle Polka" written by Catherine McCarthy and Charles Pierre. That song's first known use is in the soundtrack of the 1952 Swedish film Flottare med färg.[3] Since they are two halves of the same record, it is presumed they were released around the same time.

The songs were also broadcast on the BBC as test card music in 1954 along with two other songs from the same record label which also play on Galaxy New Radio, "Jazzy Interlude" and "Swing Doors".[4]

All four songs were reissued on the KPM CD Roads to War Part 1, only available for production music licensing from APM music, as the last four tracks.[5] It is unknown why "Yankee Doodle Polka" was omitted from licensing, perhaps to avoid confusion with the similarly named "Yankee Doodle" instrumental.

Lyrics[edit | edit source]

It is an instrumental piece, and thus has no lyrics.
