Below is a hip hop beat that I made recently. It is based on a song which is mostly famous by a performance by Nat King Cole. The song he is performing goes by the name of “Nature Boy”. The piece was originally composed by Eden Ahbez, and was published in 1947. The interesting thing here is that Eden Ahbez plagiarized the melody from Jewish composer Herman Yablokoff. Originally, the song tells a story about a strange enchanted boy who wandered very far only to learn that the greatest thing is just to love and be loved in return.
This is the first post.
Just testing for now, won’t type anything interesting.
I will just insert a video of Nat King Cole’s performance of Nature Boy. Incredible music!
