    Huh! Shows what I know ... I thought Eva's version was original. Thanks for finding that.
    Susan's is still my favorite version.

    Imagine where she'll be 20 years from now - where she will have gone, who she will have inspired, given hope to, even mentored.

    Shirley sang it exactly like most singers do, note for note, just maybe a little bit slower. Eva's version is different and hers is the version that Susan sang. It took quite a few listens to Susan's for it to grow on me but it certainly did, I love it, but still prefer the original version to Eva's.

    Thanks, DungenessDay. I look forward to watching these. How sad Eva died so young and " in obscurity" here in the states, despite her success abroad.
