I just read an article in a magazine (American Profile) that listed 10 of the best American Composers. I would have to agree, it is a very good list. Choosing only ten, of course, left out many composers. Here is the article's 10 best: Burt Bacharach, 1928- ; Irving Berlin, 1888-1989; George M. Cohan, 1878-9142; Duke Ellington, 1899-1974; Stephen Foster, 1826-1864; George Gershwin, 1898-1937; Scott Joplin, 1867-1917; Cole Porter, 1891-1964; Richard Rodgers, 1902-1979; and John Philip Sousa, 1854-1932.
A lot of listeners seem to really like this song. I gotta admit I am very fond of this song too.
Zip, my friend, I don't know how to get hold of you, but you are getting some very nice comments on your vocals. Zip is singing the vocals on "Sentimental Fool" and "Love For Her's That Strong." Zip is also the co-writer of these two songs.
