What I’ve Been Wondering

Posted in Dancing about architecture on November 15th, 2007 by bill

Here’s what I’ve been wondering: You know the song “They Can’t Take That Away from Me,” written by George and Ira Gershwin and performed by just about everybody, from Frank Sinatra to Fred Astaire to Billie Holliday to Louis Armstrong? Well, who exactly are “they” in this song, and why do they want to take it away? What does this sinister conspiracy of away-takers stand to gain from their campaign of away-taking? I tell ya, it’s driving me crazy, it’s driving me nuts. Any help would be appreciated.
