Single by Horace Heidt

"Gone with the Wind" is a popular song. The music was written by Allie Wrubel, the lyrics by Herb Magidson. The song was published in 1937. A version recorded by Horace Heidt and his Brigadiers was a #1 song in 1937.[1][2]

Inspiration[edit]

Diane E. Holloway, who has written extensively on American popular songs, insists that the song's title was inspired by the 1936 publication of the novel Gone with the Wind, and the timing of the song's release indicates that this is likely. But the lyrics have no connection to the subject matter of the novel, and this song should not be confused with any of the music featured in the 1939 film adaptation.[3]
