There’s a Little Bit of Bad

in Every Good Little Girl

“Hello My Baby” is a Tin Pan Alley song written in 1899 by the famous team of Howard and Emerson (Joseph E. Howard and Ida Emerson). It was the first popular song to refer to the telephone. The song was first recorded by Arthur Collins at Edison Phonographic Studios. The tune features similar rhythms to the short piano piece "Le Petit Nègre" by Claude Debussy from 1909.
