Like this song a lot. Didn't like the applause at the end. Heard it on my lullaby station. The applause woke my newborn ;)

One of my very favorite tunes made famous by Bette Midler. Norah gives it a twist that is unique. And even though I love Bette singing it, Norah's g twist that makes it delightful!

I wonder if the producers of this album understood the cheeky sarcasm of this song... Probably not--such in the awesomeness of Randy Newman.

Sorry, Folks...But I heard Jack Jones do this song back in the 70's, and it was incredible! I think you always like the version you hear first. Therein lie the memories!

Enjoy listing to Norah, her voice and music is relaxing. Makes you just sit back with glass of wine and let life exist around you...in other words -chill out and find calm. LOVE IT!

oh man, i'm so stoked on this song! Randy Newman is my number 2 fave (The Beatles being #1) and this is such a great version of this classic jam. No one can do Beatles songs, but Randy Newman songs are sooooooooo what the word.., they lend themselves to being covered very well.
