"Hernando's Hideaway" is a show tune from the musical The Pajama Game, written by Richard Adler and Jerry Ross and published in 1954. The lyrics describe a dark and secretive 1920's speakeasy.
The most successful recording of the song was done by Archie Bleyer, the record reaching #2 on the Billboard chart in 1954. A rendition by Enoch Light featured prominently on Command Records' "Provocative Percussion" as well as the Command test record. It has also been covered by David Clayton Thomas and is often spun by breakbeat DJs. R&B singer Debelah Morgan sampled it on her international pop hit "Dance With Me". The instrumental section of The Johnston Brothers' 1955 recording was used as the theme for Brick Top Polford in the movie Snatch.
The Pajama Game is set in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Hernando's Hideaway was a dive in East Dubuque, Illinois, perched on a high cliff overlooking the highway between Dubuque and Galena. The movie was based on the stage play of the same name which, in turn, was based on the book; it is only in the original book that there is information about where the story takes place. A number of places around the world today are named Hernando's Hideway, evidently based on the popularity of the song.
