Joseph Meyer

Joseph Meyer is responsible for writing some of the most notable songs of the first half of the 20th century. Meyer’s first success came in 1922 with lyricist Harry Ruby when the two wrote “My Honey’s Lovin’ Arms.” The song was recorded by the California Ramblers and Benny Goodman, but reached its highest Billboard peak with a recording by Isham Jones in 1922. Later that year, Meyer worked with lyricist Buddy De Sylva to create the Al Jolson #1 recording “California, Here I Come.”

Meyer contributed songs to several Broadway scores, including "Big Boy," "Just Fancy," "Here’s Howe," "Lady Fingers," "Charlot’s Revue," "Yes, Yes, Yvette," "Ziegfeld Follies" and "New Face." He also contributed to the film scores of George White’s Scandals of 1935, "Remote Control" and "Possessed."

Meyer also wrote the melody to "A Cup of Coffee, a Sandwich, and You” often used in Warner Brothers' cartoons.
