Celine Dion? Grace Slick? Are you freaking kidding me? Nat King Cole was a multi talented super-genius. Those others are total hacks. If you're going to compare anyone to Nat King Cole at least pick someone with even the tiniest bit of musical ability. Not people who shouldn't even be destroying their own songs let alone masterpieces like 'Nature Boy'.

This song is beautiful. I’ve been singing it to my son since he was born….he is the very strange enchanted boy.
Nature Boy by Nat King Cole | Reviewer: Mary Conerly
In my younger days I sang in local talent shows and Nature Boy was one I performed. It has a special place in my heart. Celine Dione has performed it in Las Vegas and her sweet voice is as sweet as Mr. Cole's

The composer | Reviewer: Manda Djinn | 6/27/07
I was surprised to find that my music sheet had the name Miles Davis in the composer spot. Knowing that he was not the composer, I came to this site to learn the true composer. I never heard the name Eden Ahbez before. He wrote a truly beautiful song and Nat King Cole's version is the one and only that always come to mind but then... Nat was always great.
Grace Slick | Reviewer: Markus
Nobody performed the song as good as Grace Slick & The Great Society on an obscure disc with recordings of pre-Jefferson Airplane from 1965!
Nature Boy | Reviewer: Linda
The 1st time I heard this song was on an old 78 record on an old phonograph. It was my grandmothers and I fell in love the first time I heard it! Ever since I've been a Nat King Cole fan!
I heard this song the fisr time in a movie "Untamed Heart" with Marisa Tomei and Christian Slater, it touch deep in my heart and from that moment i collect all music from Nat King Cole. This song changed in me the way to hear the music.
I first heard this song on an album (yes, those big disks from the 50's, 60's, 70's and 80's!). It was song by Jose Feliciano. I have been trying to find the album that has this song, but have not been able to locate it. Any else remember this? Thank You

Another beautiful recording was done by Kurt Elling. Ver similar- classic jazz style, but a bit different.
Haunting | Reviewer: John Pugh | 4/20/07
The song is priceless - nostalgic and haunting while at the same time telling about what is important. I beleive that the moral of the song,to allow love, is a rare thing indeed.
Truest words ever spoken | Reviewer: Anonymous | 4/17/07
I have lived for 70 years and I believe these are the most important words ever spoken.
"The gratest thing you will ever learn
Is just to love and be loved in return."
What a pity so many people in this world do not realise it. What a pity so few value love of another person and there love for you for what it is worth, more than money, belongings, glory or power.
THE COMPOSITION IS EXCELLENT, THE LYRICS VERY REALLISTICCCCC AND TRUE ALTHOUGH VERY SAD AND DIRECT, THE INTERPRETATION IS THE BEST OF ALL OF THEM. THANKS.
