This beautiful song was written by Kurt Weill in 1943. He had no easy life because he was a German Jew living in Nazi Germany who barely escaped with his life in the 1930s.  And he went on to die young anyway- at the age of 50.  But, as far as I'm concerned, he achieved immortality because a thousand years from now, if there are still humans on Earth, they'll be listening to this song and remembering him because it is so beautiful.
