"Simple," According to Genius Storyteller Cole Porter

Cole Porter was a master storyteller. This YouTube clip features his 1934 song "Miss Otis Regrets," performed by Fred Astaire and Barrie Chase. Sure, the clip is old, but what better example of timeless storytelling?  Today, the art and craft of simple, great storytelling is timely as ever. "Simple" is hard to do, of course, and it helps to seek out and studying classics like this one.
