I first heard this song when I was 4 and I liked this before I heard it from King and I. This version Is very mellow and relaxing.
Where can I get a copy of this song?
I used to listen 👂 to this song in the car 🚗 when I was a kid 🧒 and I used to picture Jaq and Gus dancing 🕺 to this song. I picture Jaq and Gus singing 🎤 this song
If he covers a song, it's a great song.
What a wonderful reading of this beautiful song.
Just wanted to thank you for posting this! For those of you who don't know, this is from a CD and cassette entitled "For Our Children" from Disney! What a fantastic cover! He is amazing!
It's so beautiful this song singed by James....
This song was on my preschool CD. Memories! :')
Another standard from JT, he certainly has a way with a song.
love you JT- xx such a beautiful soul

+công tuấn phạm trần Awwww
please make a karaoke version of this song with lyrics and no vocal guides by james taylor. thank you much.
please get us through these hard times amen
Me, a man of my age just met someone and am smitten. This song could not express better my feelings :-)
how'd it work out?
He just had a way with a song.Thanks
Always been one of my favourites.
He just sang"Shall We Dance?" from The King and I with the Boston Pops! He is versatile and so very talented. Sang many of these pop songs for the kids on Sesame Street. He is the BOMB!
So true.If he sang the bible I might even listen.
I had this on cassette, and it disappeared. Always loved his version...of course just about any song JT does is fabulous!
Actually, it was. But you're right; He didn't use it and doesn't need it.
Such a sweet arrangement, James has the perfect voice and vibes for this song.... bravo!
Someone, I'm sure, used to say the same thing to Billy Shakes or Eddie Poe. At first, i thought of it as complementary. Now, however, recognizing when someone sacrifices their life for a seemingly whimsical reason,like writing poetry, stories or songs (like James) and how much i depend on their decision which helps buttress against the sheer indifference of life, I then take care to not express that sentiment. That is just me.
James Taylor could sing the phone book and it would sound great. Thanks for sharing this with us all.
Wow the best unearthed JT, first heard on R2.
This is a brilliant cover of a classic showtune. I am in a production of THE KING AND I, doing multiple roles in the Uncle Tom sequence, playing Phra Alack and also singing in the ensemble, in September at the Congress Theatre in Cwmbran and it's always great to hear other people's interpretations of the songs in it! Timeless.
yes my life as a breezy soft summer wind since I met you...for you
We are still together. Headed off to do a triathlon together this very day. I have never been happier and so thankful to have met her.
he sounds great!

james taylor can do anthing....he is a pure genius.....pure class
Wow, never have heard this song done so well!
love this song :')
I have always loved this song and recently I met this sweet, endearing young lady and didn't dream she would want to be with someone like me but she does. I sent this to her to let her know how I feel. I couldn't find the words to say it so I let Sweet Baby James do it for me. It worked!!!
The Geo theme song ahh how I love it
I had the CD "For Our Children" when I was very young. I am now a music major and when I sing this, my mom cries... Then again, so do I, if the mood's right. If you could post Little Richard's "Itsy Bitsy Spider" from the same CD, I would be most grateful!

James Taylor; god, how can you describe him? Didn't think anyone else would know (much less remember) this song. I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
this guy is brilliant .....i love him
Cant find this version on itunes sadly :(
@AnimationDisney JT does not use auto tune. Does not need it. I have seen him in concert over 25 times and this guy is never off. Plus, auto tune wasn't even out there when he recorded this
Love it! JT is a national treasure!
@landyachtfan79 well said ! he could just sit infront of me on stage and do nothing - i'd still be happy ! i've shaken his hand twice @ gigs ,if you get a chance checkout fire and rain on my channel live from edinburgh , i taped it from the front row - felt like he was singing to me , WHAT A MAN ! thanks x
Ditto samsticka Whoodathunkit??!??! Yup it is boss too but then JT is BossThanks for sharing a real gem
I love James Taylor --but his rendering of this song is not the best....he sounds "tired", melancholic and monotonous....all the more so if one considers that the original tune is a beaming and upbeat one.
@Morsine789 ya some here i wish i could find the full version
I heard this song first at the Movies, it is the background song for A Honda commercial.
