or just cracks in the ceiling
nobody else to blame?

“Oh man what I used to be
Oh man oh my oh me
Oh man that I used to be
Oh man oh my oh me”

WARREN VACHÉ  (trumpet) AND BRIAN LEMON (piano) play the music of Harry Warren.

This song is from the 1957 movie of the same name “An Affair to Remember.”   It starred Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr. The music is sophisticated and erotic.  It feels like Washington Square Park at twilight.
