But, of course, Leadfingers! Ya gots ta do whut I calls "the W. C. Fields version" of "Show Me The Way To Go Home," too!

BTW, my post should read "These are, hands down ..., " not "This are, hands down ...". (Incomplete editing, there.)

But, Tar Heel, I don't agree with your categorical prescription. The residents themselves often REQUEST "I'll Be Seeing You," "Now Is The Hour," and "Till We Meet Again." I sing what they want to hear, and those are among their favorites, even if they do bring back bittersweet memories and sometimes bring a tear to the eye. (Tears are not the enenmy; depression is.)
