    I'd like to thank Larry Seyer for posting a chord chart for this almost-forgotten song from a time when we both were young. "Where Is Your Heart" was a song featured in the 1952 film "Moulin Rouge. In the film, the song was called "It's April Again" and was quite different from the 1953 hit by Percy Faith with vocal by Felicia Sanders. In addition, a version by Montovani and his orchestra was also very popular. The song is in a standard 32-bar AABA form with straightforward diatonic harmony.

    I edited Larry's chord chart and made some changes. Firstly, I transposed it into Eb, the standard fake book key, as found in the Movie Fake Book by Hal Leonard. Next, I elongated Larry's introduction to 8 measures. Finally, I corrected some mistakes in the chords.

    Here it is, a memory from my youth.

    Thanks, Larry and Keith.

    I used to play this regularly, but forgot about it for a while. I appreciate the wakeup.

    The melody in the film for It's April Again has a few minor differences with the published Where Is Your Heart?

    The form of It's April Again is not A-A-B-A, but overall it's Intro-A-B-A-Intro-A-B-A-Intro-A.

    The cadence in April has a nice little false ending that resolves with a few simple turns. I prefer this to the blunt closure in Heart.

    Hi Jerry,

    I remember this song from my childhood but never played it on a gig until last Friday! You're missing some glorious early summer weather up here.

    Regards,

    Thanks, Keith.

    I saw the film in a theatre when I was very young. Later in life when I was running a theatre company I met José Ferrer a couple of times.

    This is our rainy season. Our real summer is may and June.

    But during the rainy season the pattern usually is sun all day, usually in the 70s but sometimes in the 80s, then rain around 3-4 pm for a couple of hours, then clear.

    Cheers,
    Jer
