""Nature Boy" is a song by eden ahbez, published in 1947. The song tells a fantasy of a "strange enchanted boy... who wandered very far" only to learn that "the greatest thing... was just to love and be loved in return". Nat Cole's 1948 recording of the song was a major hit, and "Nature Boy" has since become a pop and jazz standard, with dozens of major artists interpreting the song."

so, who's version do you like the most?
it has been covered so well. i like big star's, miles davis' and joe pass+ella fitzgerald's ones the best
although the sun ra, coltrane, frank sinatra and david bowie+massive attack ones deserve a mention too
it's such a wonderful song, even rick astley's version is alright
