Feel like it’s been a few too many posts without a Bing Crosby appearance? Wait not longer, here comes 1951’s “In The Cool, Cool, Cool of the Evening” from Here Comes the Groom. The lady singing with him is Jane “I Was Married to Ronald Regan Before He Was Evil” Wyman. A first win for composer Hoagy Carmichael, but a second for lyricist Johnny Mercer.
Also? How adorable is this song. It’s one of my favorite earworms.
