From the 1920's to the 1950's, The Great American Songbook gave rise to many wonderful songs about love and loss. You can find them in the recordings by Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole and many more artists who were working during this period and beyond. For me, one of the most haunting and beautiful of these songs is 'Gone Withe Wind', written by Allie Wrubel and Herb Magidson in 1937. The title bears the same name of the famous book by Margaret Mitchell and the even more famous film, starring Clark Gable and Vivien Leigh, released a couple of years later in 1939. But it is, according to various sources, just a coincidence.
