Sunday music break.

The second most popular version of this song, which means it’s probably the second favorite version of most people reading these words.  As you can hear, Ray Stevens slightly changed a few lyrics, which makes me wonder why he didn’t also change “violins” (as in “…and a thousand violins begin to play…”) to “fiddles.”  Especially since in the background after that lyric, you do actually hear fiddles.  That would have made it the perfect country cover of the original Johnny Mathis version.

That’s… different.

Makes me wonder how the crazy woman in the movie Play Misty For Me would have reacted, hearing this version.

It's your dime, spill it. And also...NO TROLLS ALLOWED~!
