kern got one. arlen and harburg sure did. berlin took it for white christmas. burke and van heusen got one. mercer got a couple. rodgers and ham-fisted did too. styne and cahn, lerner and lowe... who's that leave?


i meant porter sorry. did he get one?.

George Gershwin never got one though he was eligible with "They Can't Take That Away from Me." Ira Gershwin never got it though he was nominated with George for the aforementioned, with Kern for "Long Ago and Far Away," and with Arlen for "The Man That Got Away." Porter was never nominated. Rodgers won for "It Might as Well Be Spring." Kern got two, BTW.

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark
