nice synopsis... i originally heard this song on an older compilation and it has stuck with my memory since. i think if you value efficiency of language, looking at old tunes like this one, songwriting doesn't get any better.


This song captures all the feeling of being broken hearted after a very bad relationship. This song was written in 1938 and it's lyrics are still 100% relevant to todays sufferings. The song says it all.


I love this song, The lyrics the tempo everything about it is class.The lyrics are completely relevant to today as much as to when it was first wrote. I recently broke up with a girl I was so in love with. I recon I have listened to this song over 1000 times at least. I just love it
