Though much too recent to qualify for inclusion under normal guidelines (even as arbitrary as those are), I'm bending to indications of visitor interest by adding this chart. Recent search results have indicated people are looking for this...so now, perhaps they can find it. This one has some HUGE names associated with its authorship. I was aware that Eastwood was an accomplished pianist, so I'm assuming his primary contribution was the music, rather than the words -- but I haven't found specific confirmation of that.
