This one qualifies as just a bit of an anomoly, at least for its time. When Laine recorded this back in the '40s, there was a fairly clear line drawn in the sand between writer and performer. While vocalists who also played instruments were often allowed to cross (Hoagy Carmichael, for example) not many singers did. Laine is so well-remembered as a vocalist that I never knew he had ever written anything until I found this one. Thanks to recent visitor Joe Korfhage for the suggestion.
