Of all the movies based on songs (Sgt. Peppers, Pretty Woman, Blue Velvet, Stand By Me, etc.), Terry Gilliam’s Brazil is by far my favorite. I first heard the song, not in the movie, but on one my dad’s Herbie Mann LPs. Here are ten of my favorites, including two from the movie, one doo wop version, a couple jazz versions, one bluegrass, one crooner, and one from the Three Tenors.
