Another rendition of a magic song written by Burt and Hal and a hit for Engelbert Humperdinck. Hope you like it!

Thanks bobciscus for sharing your video with us—it was simply great! When I played it, Les Miserables' "I Dreamed a Dream" came to mind—the opening bars of both songs are IDENTICAL! This would make for a very interesting lawsuit if Burt were to sue the writers of "I Dreamed a Dream" ala Marvin Gaye's Estate vs. Thicke ("Got To Give It Up"). I can't believe that this hasn't been brought up before now. Susan Boyles, eat your heart out!
