Have you noticed that songs whose titles being with the word “Someday” are never songs which have much of a positive spin to the lyrics. The above song dates back to the early days of Jazz and was written by the first important composer of Jazz: Jelly Roll Morton. The song has been covered many times by many artists including Bing Crosby and old Dippermouth himself. Armstrong himself penned a ‘someday’ song himself called “Someday You’ll Be Sorry” which can be found as a bonus track on some reissues of the album “Ambassador Satch” which is a compilation of ‘live’ recordings from Armstrong’s European tours in the 1950s. “Someday You’ll Be Sorry” may well be familiar to British listeners of a certain age as it was a minor hit for Kenny Ball and his Jazzmen.
