Feed the Birds

Feed the Birds—R. Sherman/R. Sherman, 1964 (Recorded March 8, 2012) Here I am, back to doing tunes in memory of someone who died. Yeesh. Anyway, Robert Sherman passed away on March 5. Robert Sherman and his brother Richard were the songwriting duo behind many of the popular Disney movie tunes of the last century. “Feed the Birds,” from Disney’s Mary Poppins, was said to be Walt’s favorite song. It makes for a lovely lullaby, and the sight and sound of Julie Andrews singing it to the sleepy Banks children in the film is a personal childhood memory that I’ll never forget.
