Indiana native, Cole Porter wrote Night and Day in Ohio in 1932 for the play Gay Divorce. This romantic song is ever a classic and ever a favorite.

A 1934 song by Irving Mills who's credited with discovering Duke Ellington and collaborated with Duke on many of his popular songs.

Blue Moon

The young song-writing team of Lorenz and Hart wrote this while working for MGM in 1933. It was released on film twice with differing lyrics before getting a third and final rewrite with today's more romantic lyrics.
