A true standard, used to close "The Concert For George", Cliff Edwards (Ukelele Ike) did an absolutely transcendent version...

"You can't go wrong with a Feist song." Always love seeing that slogan on a piece of sheet music (and there's an amazing Canadian singer named Leslie Feist out these days, which makes it sort of funny).

I have a deep sentimental attachment to this song...for the simple reason that there are always certain people one can only see in dreams. This one goes hand in hand with I'm a Dreamer (Aren't We All?), another sentimental fave. And Cliff gets a big thumbs up from me as well.
