No, it's not Thursday yet, but Brother Ellis has a couple slots still open in his top five -- and I wanted to lobby for Johnny Mercer...

How is is it that I have only heard this song a couple of times in my life? Okay, now I have to go into reconsideration mode on No. 2!

Heh. Several people commented on this tune's obscurity. It's a great request to give you some cred at the piano bar. I recommend Allison Krause's version on the "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil" soundtrack.

I'm ribbing about your top two, but Mercer's "Skylark" would certainly make my top three -- top one on a good day.
