    Believe it or not this remains after many decades the worlds most popular song.
    I have have hummed and stumbled though it in my mind all my life.

    Maybe you have to?
    This is the version that best fits what's in my mind. But there are thousands of versions, But nobody sings it better for me.

    This really is something very special. If my memory serves this song is call "Anglia is only sleeping.
    Beware you might just carry this harmony with you the rest of your life...I have.":O}

    Was it really THAT far in the past? It's a great song, been a long while since I've listened to it.

    I never appreciated what a wonderful song this is.
    lot's of admirable things here. But you have got to check out the Trumpet player, he sits just behind the keyboard artist.Or just in front of him. Where ever he's sitting it's a new world for the trumpet. Or is it an Alto Sax?

    It's very well done and interesting. The thing in Billy Preston's mouth is attached to his organ, don't think I've seen that before.

    In the manner of the original Judy Garland's version, I much prefer this version.

    Quirky may be the right word, yet I love Tracey Ullman!

    I really cant explain my affection for this tune. I think it might be the shear exuberance of youth as it crashes into the the old blues axom:
    "its sad its sad
    its sad but its true
    You can love somebody that
    just don't love you."
    In any case I do have some affection for this on, so be kind! :O}
