Subject: RE: Lyr/Tune Req: Oh How He Lied
Apparently, Lanner was hot stuff in Vienna in his time. He was a competed against the Strauss family in the waltz business, and performed constantly at the Prater amusement park and in town.
Alas, flip-flop he flied and was soon forgotten.
Strauss must have had better business sense...or maybe better music?
