Hoagy Carmichael's "Stardust"

Hoagy Carmichael wrote Stardust in 1927 with lyrics added in 1929 by Mitchell Parish.

Stardust is imho a perfect song in spite of and maybe because it is so simple. That simplicity has allowed hundreds of artist to preform the song in their own unique style.

Which brings us to the point of the thread; what's your favorite version of this classic song?

This is the earliest recording I've found with the lyrics.

My own favorite version depends on what I'm listening to at the time. This one is always near the top.
