BLUESKIES [Today is a propos to cite Berlin who wrote the most popular Christmas song of all, “White Christmas.” For some reason it pleases me that he was Jewish.] BTW, if you’ve never heard “Blue Skies” or haven’t heard it recently, you might download Tommy Dorsey’s version from the 1940’s [Sinatra vocal] or more recently Bobby Darin’s [101-Down] version --- he didn’t only do “Mack the Knife” wonderfully.
