List of Irving Berlin Songs and Music 1909-1922

irving-berlinIrving Berlin was born May 11, 1888 and later his family moved to New York and changed their name to Baline.

In 1905 he was hired by Harry Von Tilzer as a song plugger.

By 1906 he had started writing and performing his own music. His first published song was “Marie from Sunny Italy” in 1907 and it was in this same year that he changed his name from Irving Baline to Irving Berlin.

Eventually he was hired as a lyric writer by the Ted Snyder Company and it was here he had his first published commercial success in “Dorando”. His first number one selling song was written in 1910 named “Call Me Up Some Rainy Afternoon”.

In 1911 he became a partner of Waterson, Berlin & Snyder Publishing Company and it was shortly after this that he had his first international hit “Alexander’s Ragtime Band.”

In 1918 he became a United States citizen and joined the army. From this time forward he was a prolific song writer and musician.
