But I did remember all the words to "High Hopes". How could I forget them - Sammy Cahn and Jimmy Van Heusen's song was on the hit parade for months and I heard it almost every morning on CFRB before I went to school.
In the movie Sinatra as down on his luck hotel owner Tony Manetta sings it with his ever optimistic son Alley (Eddie Hodges). Hodges had shot to fame on Broadway in The Music Man and was to have a career on stage, screen and disc until he retired from show business in his late teens.
Though they sang part of the number together on screen, Sinatra's hit record was recorded with a children's chorus. It was on the charts for weeks and was the number 15 most popular song that year - and won the Oscar for best original song in a movie.
And Jeff I'm sorry I forgot the Cadillac!
