Limehouse Blues" is a popular British song written by the London-based duo of Douglas Furber (lyrics) and Philip Braham (music). Evoking the Limehouse district, which pre-World War II was considered the Chinatown of London – with Chinese references heard in both the lyrics and the melody – the song premiered in the 1921 West End revue A to Z being sung by Teddie Gerard in a wordless melodramatic number featuring Gerard as a hostess in a Limehouse dance-hall fronting a brothel.

Limehouse Blues was the title of a 1934 Paramount Picture starring George Raft, set in the Limehouse area of London. Composer Sam Coslow ( My Old Flame, Cocktails for Two, ) wrote the soundtrack. The tune’s popularity over the years has been mostly as an instrumental, especially loved by jazz musicians. In Limehouse Blues this tri-tone relationship is fully embraced, and the IV chord resolves not to iv as we would expect, nor even to I, but to the secondary dominant V7/V. Then, by passing the dominant altogether, it proceeds directly to the tonic, again surprising the ear.
