1. Trivia

I believe I read somewhere that the song was written about a gay romance.

4. Excellent, such a great classic and Bennett's theme song.

Forgot I heard him singing it in NY one weekday at the hotel Waldorf where we briefly stopped midday to meet a friend. While leaving, I heard someone singing in the background, kept looking around and then saw him on a lower staircase singing and smiling.
Sweet surprise, and well before his big resurgence in the last 15 years. San Fran's famous Fairmont Hotel is where Bennett first popularized it earlier I think.

~ Have a great day!
