Jerome Kern

He died today in 1945. He wrote a lot of great songs amongst the over 700 published in his name. Ol' Man River, Smoke Gets In Your Eyes, I Won't Dance, The Way You Look Tonight.

I knew he wrote a bunch of popular songs, but what I didn't know was that I really like Fred Astaire singing his songs best.
