Good night – A little nighttime enjoyment

3 Nov

Something to end your day on the right foot and help create some pleasant dreams.

One of my favourite songs is “Smile”. What surprised me upon researching this song is that the music was in fact composed by Charlie Chaplin for his 1936 movie “Modern Times”. Watching the corresponding clip from the film, you can see where the eventual lyrics which only came about in 1954 (written by John Turner and Geoffrey Parsons):

The lyrics are beautiful and the song itself has been covered many times. However, my favourite version is by Nat King Cole. Watch it below, listen to the lyrics, accept the message, enjoy, and smile……

More tomorrow!
