Les Paul and Cole Porter

Today is the birthday of Les Paul, inventer of the electric guitar, and the Google Doodle is a guitar you can play.  You can record your tune and send it on.  Today is also Cole Porter's birthday.  Here's Frank Sinatra singing Porter's I've Got You Under My Skin.  I'm partial to this version because of the big band that kicks in around 1:45, especially the trombone.  My guy was playing bass trombone in the university jazz band when we met.  The bass trombone doesn't quite rival bagpipes for sheer volume of sound but probably close after. Someone could probably make a really cracky vid of this song with all the possessed people and human vessels on SPN. Maybe it's even been done.
