Late Night at the Cafe: Dylan tells the story of Stardust on his Theme Time Radio Hour

"'A medley bigger than me, maybe I hadn't written it all ... Maybe I didn't write you, but I found you,'" Bob Dylan quotes Hoagy Carmichael as saying about the writing of Stardust.

"I know just what he meant," Dylan cryptically adds.

So here's Nat King Cole with his sublime interpretation of the classic. And on this note we bid you a good night.

Thanks, RWB.

Barry Manilow comes from another generation, but his quote endures:

"Great love songs never go out of style."
