OK, let's go way back: Sir Charlie Chaplin composed this pop standard in 1936 for his film "Modern Times", his transition from "silents" to "talkies". A song of encouragement and hope as one looks for a brighter tomorrow. Turner and Geoffrey added lyrics in '54, the same year that Nat King Cole and a young Petula Clark recorded it in the US and the UK respectively. Clark re-recorded it in '68. Celine Dion sang it at the 2011 Oscars during the "In Memoriam" segment.
