"Gloomy Sunday" - Wonder how many suicides Billie Holiday inspired?

"Little Girl Blue"- I wonder if Rodgers ever wrote a bad lyric?

"Nancy (With the Laughing Face)" - Whoda thunk a song this touching
could have come from Phil (Sgt. Bilko) Silvers? It didn't hurt that her
daddy sang it, either. And aren't we lucky to have a Nancy with us here
on DJML?
