The Song of the Day for August 19,2012 is When You Wish Upon a Star. It’s a downright perfect song for Sunday.
About When You Wish Upon a Star
When You Wish Upon a Star was written by Leigh Harline and Ned Washington for 1940 Disney film Pinocchio. It was originally recorded by Cliff Edwards, as the voice of Jiminy Cricket. It’s also a popular jazz standard, recorded by Louis Armstrong, the Dave Brubeck Quartet, Joe Pass and others.
About This Version
Tony included this song on his 1998 album for children, The Playground. It features some lovely guitar work by Gray Sargent.
I personally love this album and recommend it to children of all ages. There is nothing sunnier and happier to listen to when you have the blues.
