Tin Pan Alley left the following generations with hundreds of thousands of tunes and lyrics. Not only did Tin Pan Alley create music, but it helped to generate new musical styles as well. The 32-bar chorus, which originated during the Tin Pan Alley era, came out of the new technology of the phonograph. The records that the phonograph made were only capable of holding 2 to 3 minutes of music and the chorus became the main selling point of songs as opposed to ballads which had long, strophic verses (Constructing Tin Pan Alley: From Minstrelsy to Mass Culture).
"My Blue Heaven", sung here by Gene Austin, displays perfectly the use of the 32-bar chorus in music from this time period.
In addition, many songs from this era have been covered, or slightly altered to pay tribute to the artist or style of music from the this time.
Stevie Ray Vaughn pays tribute to Tin Pan Alley in his song of the same name.
