Frank Sinatra: Stardust

Hoagy Carmichael wrote this as an instrumental in 1927, but Mitchell Parish added lyrics a couple of years later. Mark Steyn had Stardust as his Song of the Century #8 and seems right to do this post here after Stars Fell On Alabama (which Parish also wrote the lyrics to and which Mark also had as his Sinatra Song of the Century #58 last week).

Here is Frank singing Stardust in 1939

Here is Frank singing Stardust in 1943.

Pundette: How About You?  And to answer Pundette's query: yes I like hearing this one more than once!

Bob Belvedere: Sinatra's Best 22 through 20, Nice 'n' Easy, I'm a Fool To Want You, The Song Is You and Don't Worry About Me (Tie)
