One of my favorite songs is "Nature Boy" written by Eden Ahbez. You can listen to the Nat King Cole version by clicking here.
Ahbez was quite a character. In the 1940s he had what was the 1960s hippie look. He was cast into the limelight and even made LIFE magazine.
Here's a rare video featuring Ahbez followed by Nat singing with Pat Boone singing the famed composition.
I don't need to try to provide any info on Ahbez. As I was researching this blog I found out that he inspires a whole blog alone! Well worth an interesting visit, you can visit that here.
The main thing I hope you get out of this Nostalgic Rambler posting is that "the greatest thing you'll ever learn, is just be loved and be loved in return...."
