Music break: At Long Last Love

 Skip the nonsense after Frank's awesome performance:


On October 24, 1937, [Cole] Porter was riding horses with the Countess Edith di Zoppola and the Duke de Verdura at the Piping Rock Club in Locust Valley, New York, when his horse rolled on him and crushed his legs, leaving him mostly crippled and in constant pain. Porter claimed that he composed the lyrics to part of "At Long Last Love" while lying in pain waiting to be rescued from the accident.
