    Both John Lennon and George Harrison loved and admired Hoagy’s songs, George singing Hong Kong Blues here.

    His attempt to compose movie scores failed when his score for Hatari! was replaced by that of Henry Mancini, although his song “Just for Tonight” (a re-working of “A Perfect Paris Night”) is used in the film. (wiki)
