Side Saddle

Side Saddle by Russ Conway was a UK number 1 hit on Friday, March 27, 1959 spending 4 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. "Side Saddle" is a hit single which was number one in the UK Singles Chart. The honky-tonk style tune, composed and played by British popular music pianist Russ Conway, was written as part of the score for a television musical adaptation of Beauty and the Beast. Conway, sitting in the TV rehearsal room, was asked to write a last-minute tune for one small scene set in a ballroom. He wrote 16 bars as an "olde-world gavotte" and hastily titled it "Side Saddle" in the margin. The song was a staple of the BBC's Housewives' Choice radio programme.
