“Richard Charles Rodgers (June 28, 1902 – December 30, 1979) was an American composer of music for more than 900 songs and for 43 Broadway musicals. He also composed music for films and television. He is best known for his songwriting partnerships with the lyricists Lorenz Hart and Oscar Hammerstein II. His compositions have had a significant impact on popular music up to the present day, and have an enduring broad appeal.

Rodgers was the first person to win what are considered the top show business awards in television, recording, movies and Broadway—an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar, and a Tony—now known collectively as an EGOT. He has also won a Pulitzer Prize, making him one of two people (Marvin Hamlisch is the other) to receive each award.” (Wikipedia)

Harry James released three live recordings of it from the 1940s and 50s, and Frank Sinatra has recorded it twice in 1950 and 1961. Peggy Lee’s 1952 version featured in that year’s version of the movie The Jazz Singer which she appeared in. Cliff Richard has recorded it on his album Listen to Cliff!.
