Notes: ~ this all-time standard was the only hit written by the composer.
Often recorded and used in motion pictures. It was sung by Bing Crosby
in the Hollywood musical "The Birth of the Blues" (1941) and by Judy Garland
in "A Star is Born" (1954) and Gogi Grant, dubbing for Anne Blyth, in "The Helen Morgan Story" (1957).
