Ray Noble (17 December 1903 – 3 April 1978) was an English bandleader, composer, arranger, radio comedian, and actor. Noble wrote both lyrics and music for many popular songs during the British dance band era known as the "Golden Age of British music", notably for his longtime friend and associate Al Bowlly, including "Love Is The Sweetest Thing", "Cherokee", "The Touch of Your Lips", "I Hadn't Anyone Till You", "Isle of Capri", and his signature tune, "The Very Thought of You". Noble also played a radio comedian opposite American ventriloquist Edgar Bergen's stage act of Mortimer Snerd and Charlie McCarthy, and American comedy duo Burns and Allen, later transferring these roles from radio to TV and popular films.

#Fact
1Noble came to the U.S. in 1935, due to popular demand for his recordings. However, it was Glenn Miller who put together his new orchestra, hiring trumpet players Charlie Spivak and Peewee Erwin, trombonist Will Bradley, tenor saxophonist Bud Freeman, clarinettist Johnny Mince and pianist Claude Thornhill. Miller stayed with Noble for eighteen months, also doing some of the arranging, before leaving to form his own band.
2The Ray Noble Orchestra was based at one of New York's most prestigious venues, the Rainbow Room. It gained national exposure on the Burns & Allen and Charlie McCarthy radio shows. Noble had recording contracts with HMV, Brunswick, Columbia and Victor.
3Noble's band specialised in ballads. His main vocalist was Al Bowlly, who was killed during a German air raid on London in April 1941.
4The son of a doctor.
5Inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1996.
6Multi-talented composer/band leader/actor/pianist. His best-known compositions include "The Touch of Your Lips," "I Hadn't Anyone Till You," "Goodnight, Sweetheart," and his theme song, "The Very Thought of You."
