"Play a Simple Melody" is a song from the 1914 musical, Watch Your Step, with words and music by Irving Berlin. The show was the first stage musical that Berlin wrote. It ran for 175 performances at the New Amsterdam Theater in New York City.
"Play a Simple Melody" is one of the few true examples of couterpoint in American popular music -- a melody running against a second melody, each with independent lyrics.
In the song, sometimes you will hear melody #1 by itself, other times melody #2 by itself, and then sometimes you hear both melodies together.
Very clever Mr. Berlin!
