    Thanks for another, “Chairman of the board”, song. I remember the movie which as a kid I thought was stupid. I wondered then and now, who gets all the coins?” 🙂

    Ah, Cinemascope!
    Oscar went to best cinematography.

    This song won an Oscar in 1955 for best song.
    (Frank Sinatra was uncredited in the film)
    Written by Sammy Cahn and Jule Styne.
    Together they also wrote a few more songs you might have heard:

    • It’s Magic
    • Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow
    • Saturday Night (Is The Loneliest Night Of The Week)
    • The Christmas Waltz
    • The Things We Did Last Summer
    • Time After Time

    I hate to say it, but it can’t be denied. They don’t write songs like those any more.

      Unfortunately, you are correct. Rock and roll killed, good popular music. Some good songs have come from Country and Western music if you can stand listening to the twang. 🙁

      Buddy Rich, the world’s greatest jazz drummer, was asked by a nurse if there was anything we couldn’t take, before Buddy went into surgery. He replied, “Country Music”. 🙂

      No, they don’t write songs like those anymore. This song is a whole story, a whole movie even. Not many songs do that now.

      I had read that it was the Oscar winner in 1955.

      Those are wonderful songs, especially the Christmas songs. After I read your comment, I went and learned more about the two and the small amount of tine they were together. It is quite interesting,
