Does anyone have a recording of Nat King Cole singing "The Way You Look Tonight", I've got just about every other version known to man but I need Nat's version.
Thanks,
PJ.

Yes I have it and can post you a CD or e-mail a file if better although I have crap broadband here so a CD may be easier.

P.S just played it through and it seems to be an instrumental, is that correct???

by Nat King Cole?

isn't that a bit odd?

like an acappella by Liberace?

I seem to recall that he was a good piano player too and that might explain it!

But PJ did say "Nat Cole singing..." :)

Get my test cards document, and cards for 625, 525, 720 and 1080. Thanks to Gavin Gration for hosting them.
Camera settings documents are held by Daniel Browning and at the EBU
My book, 'Circles of Confusion' is available here.
Also EBU Tech.3335 tells how to test cameras, and R.118 tells how to use the results.

Nat King Cole was a well known pianist for many years before becoming a singer. As a jazz fanatic I looked on the singing as a distraction. :)

Only place I could find it was the old tube:http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=mphqzdlsS9o

Hi everyone sorry for this late reply was out early yesterday filming a very dark wedding in a Castle, anyway I've sorted it now. It was played at a wedding recently and was introduced as "Nat King Cole" I've managed to get the audio track from the DJ on the night, having listened carefully I'm not sure it is Nat? but it is the version the couple wanted so at least they'll be happy.
Thanks again, I really appreciate all your help.
PJ.

Must be Westlife then as their version is a copy of the original
