Destined to become a jazz standard, this song was Brooks’ first big hit and fate played right into his hands. He persuaded Russian-born vaudeville entertainer Sophie Tucker to sing it during her appearance at a Chicago theatre. One writer wrote that the number was “perhaps the landmark song of this Tin Pan Alley epoch.” Over its lifetime, the song sold one million copies – sheet music sales were substantial – and was recorded by several artists. Some of These Days reached Number 1 in 1927.
