(BMI) c/o Warner-Chappell of Los Angeles, CA; Barris Productions Music, Inc. Recordings: [During the 1960's Phil Bodner had an instrumental group called "The Brass Ring" that featured two harmonizing saxophones, much like "The Tijuana Brass" and "The Baja Marimba Band" often featured harmonizing pairs of trumpets; Bodner's group was marketed as "The Now Sound" -- and so this South-of-the-Border happy party sound was influential in pop music for a fleeting moment during the early 1960s -- before the strident anti-war heavy metal bore down on the culture; This composition appears in the "ASCAP 1978 Index of Performed Compositions", and may have been the origin or genesis of "The Dating Game Show Theme" that was arranged by Chuck Barris and given royalties above; or it may have been a different theme tune used for reruns or the syndicated version of the series.] Composer: Philip L. of Los Angeles, CA Unpublished Copyright Date: Sep.

Then again, few other countries have the same social conditions as America.
Since the turn of the century, there has been a greater freedom between men and women, for example, both attend the same schools with the same classes.
Refreshments were often served (though not always), and the entertainment was primarily piano playing in the parlor.
But because the lower classes were not so well-endowed so that they own pianos or even parlors, they started their own form of "courtship" which soon became known as dating.
