Текст песни Anne Dudley — Nagasaki - The Foxtrot Riot!

is a jazz song from 1928 by Harry Warren and Mort Dixon that became a popular Tin Pan Alley hit. The silly, bawdy lyrics have only the vaguest relation to the Japanese port city of Nagasaki. It was one of a series of US novelty songs set in "exotic" locations popular in the era starting with Albert Von Tilzer's 1919 hit "Oh By Jingo!"; "Nagasaki" even makes reference to the genre's prototype in the lyrics.

"Nagasaki" was covered by many big band jazz groups of the late 1920s through the 1940s, and the music remains to this day a popular base for jazz improvisations. The song was most famously covered by the Benny Goodman Quartet. Others who performed the song include Fats Waller, Fletcher Henderson, Cab Calloway, Don Redman, Django Reinhardt, Stéphane Grappelli, and Chet Atkins.

Time magazine called "Nagasaki": "something like the definitive gotta-get-up-and-do-the-Charleston song, with Warren's effervescent syncopation dragging the folks onto the dance floor and Mort Dixon's lyric goading them into a singalong: Hot ginger and dynamite / There's nothing but that at night / Back in Nagasaki where the fellas chew tobaccy / And the women wicky-wacky-woo."

The song appears in numerous film soundtracks. A few of the numerous usages in animated cartoons include in Friz Freleng's 1937 Merrie Melodies Clean Pastures animated cartoon and in his "products come to life" short, September in the Rain. The clip was reused in Bob Clampett's 1943 Warner Brothers cartoon, Tin Pan Alley Cats. The song was featured in the Warner Brothers movie My Dream Is Yours (1949) sung by Doris Day. The song was also played by Hugh Laurie in the British comedy series Jeeves and Wooster and was recorded by Laurie for the accompanying soundtrack CD. It was the finale for the independent feature film Man of the Century.
