One of the most popular and successful songwriters of the 20th Century, Jimmy Van Heusen had the good luck to find himself teamed up with two of the best lyricists in show business: Johnny Burke and Sammy Cahn. With these (and other wordsmiths) he composed five Broadway shows and countless successful film scores, winning a total of four Academy Awards along the way. Of course, it didn’t hurt that singers like Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin were among his biggest fans! His songs include Crosby classics like “Swinging on a Star,” Dean Martin’s “Ain’t That a Kick in the Head?” and Sinatra best-sellers like “High Hopes,” “Love and Marriage,” “Come Fly With Me,” “All the Way” and “My Kind of Town.” He also penned such popular favorites as “Imagination,” “Call Me Irresponsible” and “I Only Miss Her When I Think of Her.”
