Lush Life

This is one of the most heartbreaking songs I've ever heard. I found a site with Blossom Dearie's rendition of Lush Life. Here it is. It plays in RealPlayer. I also found a short article on Wikipedia about Billy Strayhorn, who composed the song in the 1930's, when he was still a teen. Lot of livin' in this song. Enjoy.
