If inertia's got a hold on you, Billy May's arrangement and Frank's jazzy delivery will at least get you moving in your chair. A trip to Nyack never sounded so good:
The song was written over the phone by Matt Dennis and Tom Adair in 1941 and recorded for the album Come Fly With Me in 1958. Adair wrote the words and is therefore the guy to thank for rhyming kayak with Nyack and powder with chowder. I love it.
