Like Jorge Esteban, I, too, am transported to a special time i my life when my dad was alive. My Website, stardust dads.com, retains a clip from YouTube in which Nat King Cole sings Stardust to the accompaniment of pictures taken by the Hubble telescope Hoagy Carmichael, the song's composer. It is a special experience like no other.

Listen, just listen to the lyrics, listen. What do you hear? How do you feel? How do you change? This is more than just an old song that's popularity has died over the years, it's far from it. It's like fine wine, age adds to the delicious flavor of the melody. No one has the courage to write song like this anymore. Young talent in Hollywood is surpressed and it's a shame. Our adolecents need to listen to this song and learn to savor wonderful stories when they come across them. This song is more than a song, it's a lament beautifully convayed through the sweet sound of song. It is a gift. Thank God for it, because it must have been in a vision, from the Lord, that this song was created.
I hate to sound like an old fart ( I'm only 41 ) complaining about today's music, but they just don't write songs like this anymore...Beautiful words & melody..Nat King Cole's version is great, but don't forget Louis Armstrong's version...My favorite one...I sing this at my Jazz gigs and it always gives goosebumps when I sing it !
Some people believe that past times were always better. I hate to sound that pessimistic, but when I listen to Nat King Cole, I am transported to a special time in my childhood. A time in which even the smoke from my Dad's cigarettes smelled sweet. Stardust is a song I've known all my life, and every time I hear it, the world seems different, and all my dreams come to life. Allow this beautiful song to find a place in your memory. I'm sure it will stay with you forever, as it has with me.
CLASSIC - AWESOME! | Reviewer: Reb
No simple and silly words or melody - this is a complex song. But i't complexity does not detract from it's beauty - NO SIR-EE! No matter who sings it, even Hoagy himself, it's contagious!
