"The Very Thought of You" is a pop standard published in 1934, with music and lyrics by Ray Noble. In addition to Noble's own hit recording of the song with his orchestra, featuring the vocals of Al Bowlly, there was also a popular version recorded that same year by Bing Crosby. A decade later, the song was on the charts again in a version by Vaughn Monroe. Doris Day sang the song in the 1950 movie Young Man with a Horn, a fictional tale partly based on the life of early jazz trumpeter Bix Beiderbecke.
In 1961, "The Very Thought of You" was on the charts again ,in a rhythm & blues version recorded by Little Willie John, and three years later a rock and roll version by Ricky Nelson reached #19 on the Billboard chart. There have also been numerous recordings of the song by jazz and pop standards artists, including Frank Sinatra, Nat "King" Cole, Carmen McRae, Billie Holiday, and Elvis Costello; and a blues version on Albert King's Born Under a Bad Sign album. Most recently, Tony Bennett and Sir Paul McCartney recorded a duet version of the song for the former's Grammy-winning 2006 album Duets: An American Classic. An instrumental version of the song is also among the background music in the film Casablanca in the scene where Sascha kisses Rick Blaine on the cheek.
