*Barbour was a frequent musical collaborator with Lee, and also co-wrote two of Lee's biggest hits -- Manana (Is Soon Enough For Me) and It's a Good Day. Barbour had been a guitarist with Benny Goodman's orchestra when Lee replaced Helen Forrest as the band's featured female singer in 1941. Lee married Barbour and left the band within two years.
