Charlie Chaplin, John Turner and Geoffrey Parsons

Story

 

When the brilliant silent film star Charlie Chaplin wrote this gorgeous melody as an instrumental track for his 1936 film, Modern Times, it became an instant classic. In 1954 John Turner and Geoffrey Parsons added the lyrics that carry the powerful message of hope that there is always tomorrow, and “life is still worthwhile, if you just, smile.” Wayne is once again inspired by the silky voice of Nat King Cole’s 1954 version of this beautiful love song. The lyrics are delicately sung as a celebration to life itself as they are caressed by Judy Roberts’ amazingly sensitive treatment at the piano.
