Subject: RE: Poems of A.A.Milne Set to Music
Well, Shula, now you've gone and set a song running in my head, and I can't clear it until I find the song. I distinctly remember a very nice recording that went,
"They're changing guards at Buckingham Palace
Christopher Robin went down with Alice
[two lines I don't remember, then a rest for a full measure, and then]
Like Alice.
But I can't find it, and now it's going to bug me until I do. Most of the Pooh Web sites have to do with the Disney version of the story, with songs by the Sherman brothers. Not bad songs, but kind of commercial.
There's also the Kenny Loggins song, "Return to Pooh Corner," but I'm sure that's not what you're after.
By the way, I bought my Latin teacher mother a copy of "Winnie Ille Pooh," but she read it in her horrid "classical" pronunciation. I almost took the book back.
