Vinyl LP pressing by the legendary tin-pan alley lyricist and composer. Johnny Mercer co-wrote the title track in 1944 and it became a huge hit for him. "Ac-Cent-Tchu-Ate the Positive" was written by Harold Arlen (music) with lyrics by Mercer. The song was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Original Song at the 18th Academy Awards in 1945 after being used in the film Here Come the Waves. It is sung in the style of a sermon, and explains that accentuating the positive is key to happiness. Mercer recorded the song, with The Pied Pipers and Paul Weston's orchestra, on October 4, 1944, and it was released by Capitol Records. The record first reached the Billboard magazine charts on January 4, 1945, and lasted 13 weeks on the chart, peaking at #2. On March 25, 2015, it was announced that Mercer's version would be inducted into the Library of Congress's National Recording Registry for the song's "cultural, artistic and/or historical significance to American society and the nation's audio legacy".
