  Brother Can You Spare a Dime?
Broadway and Hollywood composer Yip Harburg (1896-1981) was honored in 2005 with a stamp issued by the United States Post Office. Two of his most famous works include "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" (1939) and "Brother, Can You Spare a Dime" (1931). The first song was well known and beloved for it's use in the 1939 movie "The Wizard of Oz." The second song "Brother, Can You Spare a Dime" was one of the great anthems of the Great Depression. The Great Depression was the global economic recession that ran from 1929 to the early 1940s. In the United States, the beginning of the Great Depression was marked by the stock market crash of 1929. Different renditions of the "Brother, Can You Spare a Dime" song in popular music include: Judy Collins, Spanky & Our Gang, The Weavers, and of course, Yip Harburg.
