Biography
Lyricist Bud Green was born in Austria on November 19, 1897; raised primarily in the U.S., he scored his first major hit in 1924 with Alabamy Bound, a collaboration with B.G. DeSylva and Ray Henderson. In 1928, Green began a hugely successful partnership with composer Sam Stept, inaugurated with Helen Kane's hit That's My Weakness Now. Writing primarily for Hollywood in the years to follow, the duo generated an impressive series of popular favorites, including Love Is a Dreamer, The Wearing of the Green, When They Sang, The World Is Yours and Mine, There's a Tear for Every Smile in Hollywood, For the Likes of You and Me, Liza Lee, Do Something, and I'll Always Be in Love With You. Apart from Stept, Green paired with composer Michael Edwards for the 1937 hit Once in a While, teaming with Slim Gaillard and Slam Stewart the following year for Flat Foot Floogee. His biggest hit, however, remains Sentimental Journey, the 1944 standard authored with Ben Homer and bandleader Les Brown. Green died in Yonkers, NY, on January 2, 1981. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi
