About the Song
"Sentimental Journey" is a popular song, published in 1944. The music was written by Les Brown and Ben Homer, and the lyrics were written by Bud Green. Brown's orchestra, with Doris Day as vocalist, had a hit record with the song, Day's first #1 hit, in 1945. The recording was released by Columbia Records as catalog number 36769, with the flip side "Twilight Time". The record first reached the Billboard charts on March 29, 1945 and lasted 23 weeks on the chart, peaking at #1. The song actually reached the charts after the later-recorded "My Dreams Are Getting Better All the Time". In 1951, Brown's orchestra redid the song, with The Ames Brothers on vocals. This was released by Coral Records as catalog number 60566, with the flip side "Undecided". The song later became something of a standard with jazz artists and was recorded, among others, by Buck Clayton with Woody Herman and by Ben Sidran. Rosemary Clooney issued an album Sentimental Journey (2001) which included the song. Ringo Starr covered this song for his 1970 album Sentimental Journey. Dave Dudley brought the song to country music with his top 50 version in 1976.    Download this sheet!
