Ernest Hemingway, Humphrey Bogart and Hoagy Carmichael, Song from ‘To Have and Have Not’…

Comme nous avons des belles choses en France… I was looking for one of my favorite songs on YouTube, and apparently it was removed for copyright violation.

The song is from the film with Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall, based on the book To Have and Have Not, by our friend Ernest Hemingway, with the great Hoagy Carmichael singing on the piano.  The French have more liberal copyright laws and they’re hard to pin-down in a court of law… fortunately for us because we get to ‘see’ this lovely song published (with the scene from the movie), on the French version of YouTube, called ‘DailyMotion’:

By the bye: this is definitely not an advertisement for DailyMotion, I don’t even really like their website to tell you the truth. I just wanted to share it with you in case you can’t find some of your favorite songs on YouTube, you can try this other stupid site, which is, however, less-stupid than YouTube.

Sincerely Yours,

Roman Payne
