Smile

thGTW94791    This song can be a terrific closer for the night.  You always want to send your crowd home with a smile on their face… and what better song than this?

It was composed by Charlie Chaplin for his 1936 movie Modern Times.  Originally an instrumental soundtrack for the movie, it was released in 1954 by Nat King Cole with wonderful lyrics – “You’ll find that life is still worthwhile – if you’ll just – smile”.  The MP3 and midi files (without the lead line) are on the Pop/Rock list.

September 4th is my mother’s birthday.  She always had one of her great smiles for me – no matter what.  Today, give a stranger one of your smiles – it might be the only sunshine he sees all day.
