One of my favorite songs period. Written by the great Harold Arlen, this song is the living testament to the power of a beautiful melody. Quite simply a melody like this knows no space or time that’s why it has been with us since it premiered in 1939 and will continue to be with us. Yes there are hundreds of covers of this classic, I thought a nice three-peat would be fun for our series today. If you have a personal fave of this song hit us up in the comment section with a link or on Facebook. Checkout the other clips after the jump!
