I like Bing's solo recording of this tune, where the lyrics really hit you. This lighter version though has Fred MacMurray when he was young enough to see why Hollywood recruited him, but even more cool is that little guy, Donald O'Connor, the comic dancer who did one of the great scenes in Hollywood history in his "Make'em Laugh" solo number in SINGIN' IN THE RAIN. They may not all be actually playing their instruments, but they're all singing and Donald's dancing shows why he became a star as well.

I have to admit, I didn't pay too much attention to the lyrics, Bing or Donald O'Connor. Having just caught the last five minutes of "Double Indemnity" on TCM, it's just really hard to see how Fred MacMurray could go from corny clarinet player to cold-blooded killer. I suppose Billy Wilder gets some of the credit of course.
