Oldies/Sheet music


I tried the link from your 2010 message for Eddie Fischer's "When I was young", but it doesn't work.I'm trying to find the music so a friend can play it for me. Any ideas?

Many thanks,


Hi Morty,

I'm sorry that the YouTube link no longer works, but YouTube links are not perminent, so that can happen.  I usually provide a link to YouTube or a recorded sample simply to help the questioner confirm that I've provided the information on the specific song they were seeking. Here is another YouTube link for that song (Eddie Fisher's recording of "When I Was Young"): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=27QriS4rsXU

However, it appears from your subject line that you are also seeking sheet music for this song. My research could not locate any free sheet music downloads, but I've located the sheet music for sale from various sources, included this e-bay link: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Eddie-Fisher-YOUNG-1953-Sheet-Music-Ex-Cond-/36050288001

Hope that helps you,

I can also research lyrics to songs. I am more knowledgeable in the area of pop and rock songs, but I am willing to research soul and country songs. I cannot answer questions relating to classical, jazz, or rap songs. Also, I'm not an expert on music videos.
