Penned by Carmen Lombardo, with Charles Newman as the lyricist, Sweethearts on Parade was released in 1928 by Guy Lombardo and quickly reached #1 on the U.S. charts. The venerable foxtrot was recorded and released the following year by Abe Lyman & His California Orchestra, reaching #8 on the charts and in 1932 Louis Armstrong covered the song, achieving a #6 position. The song would go on to inspire the title of the 1930 movie of the same name, which also featured numerous other Lombardo songs.
