This one's got kind of an unusual history, which was forwarded by Ron Hontz:
Perhaps the most popular piece from Victory at Sea is "Beneath the Southern Cross," (track 7), a strangely sensuous and romantic tango-like composition. It was such a lovely and evocative melody that Rodgers later "borrowed" it and transformed it into a hit song ("No Other Love"), which appeared in the 1953 Broadway musical “Me and Juliet” and would be recorded by Perry Como.
