Porgy
Jimmy McHugh, Dorothy Fields
Not to be confused with Gershwin's I Loves You Porgy.

Virtually overnight, [the Broadway revue] Blackbirds of 1928 turned Jimmy McHugh and Dorothy Fields into two of America's most celebrate songwriters. In addition of "I Cant' Give You Anything but Love, Baby" ... there was also another song that never caught on with the general public but became a favorite of blues singers for many years: "Porgy," written seven years before Gershwin's Porgy and Bess and inspired by the same DuBose Heyward play (which had opened on Broadway in 1927).
