I would like to suggest that Sir Christopher sing some of Leonard Cohen's songs: Bird on A Wire, Suzanne, Famous Blue Raincoat, are some that spring to mind. I think Sir Christopher would sing these wonderfully!

Hmm I've thought long and hard, send in the clowns fits CL's voice, but I personally would like to hear him sing 'If', I remember Telly Savalas singing this many years ago, but feel certain CL would equal or even surpass that version.

I voted for send in the clowns,as it is a versatile song,which can be sung or spoken,in so many different ways.

Hi Laura and Eugenia

My Way is indeed a great song for Mr Lee. Mr Lee's last album Revelation featured his version of My Way. Check it out if you get the chance - it's well worth a listen.

I agree with Laura, Mr Way would be perfect for Mr. Lee. His Way seems to have worked out just fine.

RE which song:
I think Mr Lee would be good singing MY Way, it would suit his voice and every role he plays he does it in his own way!
Second choice would be I'm Still Standing as he is one of the worlds longest standing Actors aswell as the best!

Hello everyone,

You may be interested to know, Steve, that the words of the song actually come from one of Edgar Allan Poe's poems entitled "El Dorado".

Warmest regards,

Hello Andre,
Many, many thanks for the link to this poem. My brother has just informed me, that in fact, he has some poems of Edgar Allen Poe. As I read your link, I could visualise James Caan reciting certain lines in the movie. I particularly like the song at the beginning of this film, which is obviously based around the poem. Like your father, Andres, my late father loved watching the westerns.... especially the John Wayne's. I can remember many a Sunday afternoon, watching them with him. I have a fond memory of one Christmas a few years back, watching a double bill of his films, with my dad, from 6 am in the morning.

Many thanks again,
and all the best.

It may well have the title of the film. James Caan recites a little of it during the film, in poem form. This is a tiny snippet of the song.
"He'll never turn back, though he's lost in the snow, for he's searching to find El Dorado."
"Ride boldly ride, to the end of the rainbow."

Hello everyone,

You may be interested to know, Steve, that the words of the song actually come from one of Edgar Allan Poe's poems entitled "El Dorado". I have vague memories of this film (my father LOVES Westerns) and I certainly remember the song at the beginning. Here is a link to the poem: Edgar Allan Poe: El Dorado. Take care:

Warmest regards,

Andrés

Hello everyone. I think Send in the Clowns is a Beautiful song, and so that gets my vote.

I would love to hear Mr Lee singing this song, I think it would suit his voice very well.
I am a bit of a Western film fan. I enjoy a good classic western now and again, one of my favorites being The Magnificent Seven. This has a lot to do with the film score, I think.

Cleave a dragon in record time? I could see Mr. Lee doing that easily.

Oh, definitely C'est Moi. Not to put down any of the other choices at all, but it's a rollicking good song.

Would sound definitely breathtaking

If he does sing it I hope he does it in german. I love that song.

Another song that would suit Mr. Lee's voice, I believe, is "The Last Farewell"

Try to Remember is a lovely song. But I must agree wtih Isabel -- Perhaps Love should be a choice.

Excuse for not voting for in the suggestions. I still hope to hear Mr. Lee sing Perhaps Love.

Try to Remember was my choice - a lovely, wistful song that Mr Lee would sing beautifully I'm sure.

I would also like to suggest a song which has always been my favourite number from a musical - the rousing and infectious Bless Your Beautiful Hide from 7 Brides for 7 Brothers. Mr Lee's baritone voice would suit this song very well.

Just a very personal choice I love to the song and Stephen Sondhiems lyrics. the wistfull quality of the piece Ithink would be good Mr Lee has a wonderful wayof bringing qualities like that out in a piece. Musical or other wise though I might hedge a little and say tryto Remember would be a close second choice.

I voted for Send in The Clowns which is a lovely song.
I'd like to suggest " It Was A Very Good Year" Sinatra made the song famous but it's been done by many artists over the years.
The lyrics are tremendous and I think the song and it's story would fit Mr Lee perfectly.
