'Lazy Bones' Hoagy Carmichael

I love Hoagy Carmichael - I have to thank my Dad for that. One the great songwriters of the 20th century. This song has a particular resonance with me for some reason - though I have to say I don't spend a lot of time sleeping. If you want to hear and see more - go here to see him playing Memphis in June to George Raft. Hoagy - real name Hoagland, named after a circus troupe the Hoaglands that stayed in his mother's house, acted in 14 motion pictures, including things like To Have and Have Not and an episode of the Flintstones.
