Noble Sissle and Eubie Blake’s “I’m Just Wild About Harry” was another old standard that was revived for political purposes—this time for Harry Truman. Jack Yellen and Milton Ager’s song “Happy Days Are Here Again” was written for the movie musical, Chasing Rainbows. It had a new lease on life as the campaign song of Franklin Delano Roosevelt in 1932.
