How Long Has This Been Going On?

I know how Columbus felt
Finding another world

Kiss me once and then once more
What a dunce I was before
What a break!  For Heaven's sake
How long has this been going on?
A wonderful vocal by Louis Armstrong (listen to his handling of the tricky melody) accompanied by Oscar Peterson on piano.  From 1957.  Composed by George and Ira Gershwin.

  1. Although his voice always sounds strained to me, Louis pulls off beautiful music such as trhis one. dm
