Here's a gem - a rare recording of the Great Cole Porter singing his own song, accompanied by himself. There's a true sense of zeitgeist in this tune - not only are the lyrics practically plucked from the newspaper headlines of the 30's, but his voice and tempo and staccato delivery simply can't be from any other era.
I was thinking about doing a whole encyclopedic entry to explain the lyrics, but then I found this clip on YouTube that does the job far more elegantly than I would have.
"You're The Top" written and performed by Cole Porter (1934)
Wikipedia lists some of the alternate lyrics from over the years.
