"Polka Dots and Moonbeams," with music by Jimmy Van Heusen and lyrics by Johnny Burke, has long been one of their most enduring ballads. The especially unusual yet charming line "pug-nosed dream" keeps recurring at the end of most of the verses. The song was featured in the 1945 Hollywood musical Belle of the Yukon. Bing Crosby and Doris Day were among the earliest pop singers to record it, though Frank Sinatra was responsible for putting the song on the map with his interpretation. This slow ballad became a standard for jazz artists, including Nat King Cole, Charlie Byrd, Tommy Dorsey, Glenn Miller, Bill Evans, Hank Jones, Bud Powell, Gerry Mulligan, and Wes Montgomery, as well as the blind organist and singer Joe Mooney.
