"Nature Boy" is a song by Eden Ahbez, published in 1948. It tells about a fantasy of a "strange enchanted boy... who wandered very far, very far, over land and seas" only to learn that "the greatest thing... was just to love and be loved in return". Nat Cole's 1948 recording of the song was a major hit, and "Nature Boy" has since become a pop and jazz standard, with dozens of major artists interpreting the song. George Benson covered it on his 1977 "In Flight" album. The song has been a major theme for many films such as The Boy with Green Hair, Untamed Heart, Nature Boy, The Crossing, Angel Eyes and Moulin Rouge! to name a few. - JC The Nat King Cole Trio (1948): Nat King Cole - Piano Irving Ashby - Guitar Johnny Miller - Bass
