Old Timey Tuesday: Stardust

This 1927 Hoagy Carmichael number has a special place in my heart because a very dear lady once told me it was her favorite. Carmichael was a Hoosier, and wrote this piece while he was still a student at IU. He recorded the first rendition at Gennett Studios in Richmond, Indiana. That recording is now included in the Library of Congress National Recording Registry. This Midwestern "song about a song" is now one of the most recorded tunes in American musical history.

For Nani. Our "consolation is now in the stardust of a song."
