@abigail.deeks didn't realize this version inspired Baz for Mouln Rouge. Then I discovered that Eden Ahbez wrote nature Boy specifically for Nat King Cole. My parents had Eden's crazy "Eden's Island" 60's vinyl in their collection. I played that album into the ground as a kid:)
Wonderful song which has a wonderful Wiki page to itself http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nature_Boy
Also worth reading is Eden Ahbez's page said to be the father of the Hippy movement.
@Sid_Bonkers Thanks for the links. I knew Ahbez through my parents record collection. Didn't know the full story. Truly amazing. And Nature Boy topped the charts again this year with Bennet & Gaga!
@AlicejustMay If you have time the story behind this beguiling song Nature Boy is magical. @Sid_Bonkers provided links.
This is one of the songs that is always on my MP3 player
@Sid_Bonkers Definitely! This trio version might become one of my all time faves!!! Short concise songs with meaning always blow me away!
Terrific track - and thanks for the info, @Sid_Bonkers.
