Music Monday - "Nature Boy" by Nat King Cole

"Nature Boy" is one of my all time favorite songs.  It was recorded by Nat King Cole in 1948, and it has such a beautiful and haunting quality.  I love the lyrics, from the first lines:

"There was a boy
A very strange enchanted boy
They say he wandered very far
Very far, over land and sea ..."

I found a lovely video of Nat King Cole performing this jazz classic, below.  I hope you enjoy it too.

You're right--this is a beautiful song. I have never seen Nat King Cole at this age. I'm used to seeing him later in life. I love all of his music! Thanks for sharing this video.

Hi Mary! I love all Nat King Cole songs, too. He would easily be on a list of my all time favorite top 10 singers.

Hope you're having a good day!
