This Tuesday’s Tune: “Nature Boy by Nat King Cole

I love Nat King Cole’s voice! I love most of his songs but there is something special about ‘Nature Boy. The haunting tune creates an atmosphere of melancholy from the very beginning. And then there are the amazingly poignant lyrics. The last two lines especially move me. Nature Boy, a song I loved from the moment I heard it for the first time.

    1. I love the instrumental break! Amazingly beautiful!

      So lucky that you got to see him on TV as a kid! He was one of the first African Americans to host a television variety show. A true pioneer.
