Song of the Week: Stardust

From Wiki: Hoagland Howard "Hoagy" Carmichael was an American composer, pianist, singer, actor, and bandleader. He is best known for writing "Stardust" (1927), which has been called the most-recorded American song ever written.

And there's a reason why it's been recorded so much. Here's Hoagy himself singing it and accompanying himself on piano.
