This is a great song, especially (I think) for people who have been in love for a long time.

He is great as crooner, and IMO even better as a full-on jazz singer. IMO he is one of the very best male jazz singers ever. I have a CD set of all his recorded jazz work. He has a great Christmas CD too, along with Nat King Cole and Tony Bennet.

Me too. DH and I saw "the velvet fog" in concert years ago. He was funny, charming, and put on a wonderful show.

I was a little girl when I first heard this song. Even though I knew nothing of romance, I understood she was sad because he was gone.

My vote for the saddest, bluest love song ever is Ray Charles' "Born to Lose". Not available on YouTube. You think maybe it's so sad they removed it?
