Nature Boy


***The story of how the song: Nature Boy, came to be a number 1 hit and the life of the man who wrote it, is one interesting tale. I was so glad I noted this on Freshly Pressed today. See my comment below too. ***

  1. Oh what a fascinating post, Geraldine! And it just so happens that Nature Boy is one of my all-time favorite songs ever! In fact, I have it bookmarked from You Tube and listen to it a lot. I love the Nat King Cole version the best, but I equally love the version sung by his daughter, Natalie, because she does it so hauntingly beautiful.

    Thank you for sharing this post. Thoroughly enjoyed it!

  2. Great post and the story of Eden Ahbez is fascinating. I was also surprised that the production company we contacted did not show any interest in making this into a movie. It’s a lot better story than so many that are made into movies and it’s the real thing. Truth can be stranger than fiction and certainly was in this case.

  3. PS: Can anyone tell me who the people in this photo are? I have no idea and I don’t see a caption for this.

  4. oh wow I love nature boy by Nat King Cole shivers down my back…USA President Eisenhower ??? and wife…\I have no idea but it looks Presidential
