When Johnny met Margaret

Guestpost! Jan Willem selected a great song:

Gents, if you're trying to keep that very special someone indoors during the holiday season, you can do worse than take a cue from wordsmith Johnny Mercer. In this 1949 recording, the guy who invented the blues in the night makes hilarious seductive moves while Margaret Whiting struggles to keep up appearances as her resistance crumbles. Truly classic stuff.
