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.
