Notes: ~ This song was included within a tribute to Bing Crosby which Perry performed several times in live performance and on his well known television specials throughout the 1980s.  The tribute was again featured in live performance on a 1989 PBS television special with the Boston Pops and John Williams which included an encore performance with Perry singing "The Wind Beneath My Wings" interspersed with Crosby and Como video footage from their 1960 television shows where each was the guest of the other. This PBS Special was repeated many times during the years following.
 
Bing Crosby Medley
 
Notes: ~ the title of this song was derived from a note in Stephen Foster's handwriting found in his pocket after his death. Popular recordings by Bing Crosby (Decca), Dinah Shore (Columbia) and Gordon MacRae (Capitol). The song was on "Your Hit Parade" for fifteen weeks.
