I love the way he sings this. I’m sure this version was used in a movie but can’t picture which one. Grand Torino comes to mind but it’s been awhile.
Maybe his version was a theme in or on the soundtrack of many movies. Thank you much for stopping by and for your feedback.
One of my very favorites. Always makes me smile. Thank you for a great start to my day!
Thank you for the feel-good feedback, Terre. “IZ” has the spirit! Have a blessed and relaxing weekend!
What a lovely video! I have never heard of him – thank you for sharing!
You are so very welcome! 🌺🍂🌺
