Does anyone know who the composer of this piece of music called Wedding Dance is? I remember it was played by the ship's band in Titanic and I always liked it. I've been trying to find some information on this song, but I can't seem to find any.

Hi Philip, I believe I have an answer for you. The music piece called “Wedding Dance” in JC’s Titanic is actually a waltz also known as “Hochzeitsreigen” composed by the German Carl Emil Paul Lincke (known mostly as Paul Lincke) in 1905.

There was an interesting lawsuit involving this piece in 1922. A different piece by H. Pitman Clarke called "Swanee River Moon" was thought to be a partial plagiarism of Lincke’s waltz, but a judge thought the similarities between the two were not substantial enough to warrant it actually having been plagiarism.

I was reviewing a scene from Titanic, in which Rose spits in Cal's face as the ship is going down, and it appears that the only existing recording of Wedding Dance is not the entire song. The part I'm referring to was structured differently than the rest of the song, and it was played at a different pitch. Does anyone know if this version of the song exists in any album?

Sorry, Paul Lincke. Got the wrong bottom!
