I am curious to know if there exists a list of some or all of the
popular songs in the USA in the 20th century based on the music of Peter
If there is such a list, I am curious about it and would like to find
it. Meanwhile, I am trying to compose a list for my own edification. I
watched a marvelous film made about Tschaikovski on Netflix tonight which
has piqued my interest. I am 85 years old, and recall many of his melodies
as popular songs of my youth in Pennsylvania. I am a retired teacher
currently living in California.
Thanks for any help you can give me.
Pop Songs based on Tchaikovsky's music
We went through this not too long ago...and I tried to compile as many
songs based on Tchaikovsky as I could find....so I think you will find the
above site useful...the Wikipedia list I mention is quite extensive in pop
songs generated from the classical repertory...though not many on
Happy New Year,
Don’t forget ‘Everybody’s Making Money But Tchaikovsky’ by Les Brown
and His Orchestra (the vocal is sung by Betty Bonney) from 1941.
It is loosely based on Tchaikovsky’s Marche Slave, Op.31.

Cute song and a hint here and there of some of the composer's
works..but a bit of a stretch to see the Marche Slav anywhere in
sight...however to each his own...
Remember -- S.H.E -
Here is another pop song based on the famous melody from Swan Lake...at
least in part....came out in 2002...
