Eddie Albert sings "Without a Song" (from his 1958 album "High Upon a Mountain"); with pictures from his 50-year stage & screen career. (12 March 09: Now with annotations!)

"Without a Song": music by Vincent Youmans ("Tea for Two"), lyrics by Billy Rose & Edward Eliscu. From the short-lived 1929 show "Great Day" (which also launched its title song and the standard "More Than You Know"). The original lyric's a tad, umm, dated-- there's a Bing Crosby recording of it on YouTube, if you're curious-- but most perform it in the version heard here.

In fact, this song is all over YouTube (Sinatra, Jan Peerce, Sammy Davis, The Carpenters, Stevie Wonder, and more). I suspect Mahalia Jackson "gets it" best, but Eddie's rendition--in my book a close second--has considerable charm.
