He had two more number one hits in 1935 when he was a member of the Dorsey Brothers Orchestra: "Lullaby of Broadway", number one for two weeks, and "Chasing Shadows", number one for three weeks. His biggest hit was "I'll Never Smile Again", featuring Frank Sinatra on vocals, which was number one for twelve weeks on the Billboard pop singles chart in 1940.

From Mike Sisk ('63) of CA - 11/16/10 - "Apple Humor":

 It all began with an iPhone...
March was when my son celebrated his 15th birthday, and I got him an iPhone.

He just loved it. Who wouldn't?

 

I celebrated my birthday in July, and my wife made me very happy when
she bought me an iPad.

My daughter's birthday was in August so I got her an iPod Touch.

September came by so for her birthday i got my wife an iRon. 

It was around then that the fight started...

What the wife failed to recognize is that the iRon can be integrated into the home network with the iWash, iCook and iClean.

This inevitably activates the iNag reminder service.

I should be out of the hospital by Thursday!

      OOOH - you baaad!!! Thanks, Michael - and Happy Birthday!

 I'll Never Smile Again

Written by Ruth Lowe (12 Aug 1914 – 04 Jan 1981), 1939

Recorded by Frank Sinatra and the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra, 1940


I'll never smile again
Until I smile at you
I'll never laugh again
What good would it do
For tears would fill my eyes
My heart would realize
That our romance is through
I'll never love again
I'm so in love with you
I'll never thrill again
To somebody new
Within my heart
I know I will never start
To smile again
Until I smile at you
Within my heart
I know I will never start
To smile again
Until I smile at you
