Songs From The Year 1921

Songs that were written in the year 1921 - I'm not looking for songs written in the rest of that decade. The year the song was copyrighted is more important than the date of the first recording, which is sometimes later. I realise defining the exact date isn't always easy! This follows on from my 1920 collection.
