As far as I know, this swinging torch song is the only song that Bing Crosby got writing credit for, as lyricist. The melody was written by Victor Young, and Bing first recorded it in 1932. But, it went on to become a perennial jazz standard recorded by many of the greats. There is fabulous recording of it by Linda Ronstadt, in collaboration with the great arranger Nelson Riddle, and I believe it was his last project before he died. This rendition includes the nifty guitar stylings of my good friend Paul Popa. It's called: I Don't Stand A Ghost Of A Chance With You
