Recorded by Bing Crosby, Sam Cooke, Mel Tormé and Michael Feinstein among others, it is not only instantly recognizable but refreshingly pertinent in its message.
BLUE SKIES by irving Berlin
On opening night of the 1926 musical Betsy, audiences demanded 24 encores of Blue Skies from star Belle Baker.
