In the movie Mr. Roberts, Ensign Pulver goes to the newly-opened military hospital expecting to find nurses. On his way, he sings the tune, If I Could Be With You.
I present the entire song to you in tribute to all of the Ensign Pulvers in the world who found their nurses.
Thank you, Crystal. Love your sense of humor.
For the bonus points: Where did the original melody for this beautiful song originate? HINT: THERE’S A HINT AT THE VERY BEGINNING OF THE VIDEO
…OK…not big on covers of this song. The original Bill Withers is the benchmark. But I was compelled by the rap lyrics espousing every lesson a child should learn from a good parent. That makes me sit up and take notice.
FREAKIN’ AWESOME song…Laura and I would spontaneously dance together wherever we were when this played!
OK…on a serious Joe Walsh/Eagles tear the last two days… When I watched this I was alone and still said, “Holy S***!” out loud. Freakin’ incredible slide guitar work by a virtuoso. His back-up players aren’t bad either. <wink>
