Blossoms will run away -
Cakes reign but a Day.
But Memory like Melody,
Is pink eternally

Jimmy Durante

Here is a famous song performed in his inimitable manner by the legendary Jimmy Durante. James Francis Durante (1893 – 1980), better known as Jimmy Durante, was an American singer, pianist, comedian and actor, whose distinctive gravel delivery, comic language butchery, jazz-influenced songs, and large nose — his frequent jokes about it included a frequent self-reference that became his nickname: "Schnozzola" — helped make him one of America's most familiar and popular personalities of the 1920's through the 1970's. He was also one of the most beloved people within the entertainment industry: an acquaintance once remarked of Durante, "You could warm your hands on this man."
Enjoy Jimmy Durante's unique style!
