Hoagy Carmichael was an American songwriter, who did most of his
best-known work in the thirties. He wrote standards like, "Stardust,"
"Georgia On My Mind," and "I Get Along Without You Very Well."

A pretty good example of Carmichael's style can be seen in Tom Waits' early
work, particularly the album, "Heart of Saturday Night."
