THE 1000 BEST SONGS IN THE WORLD EVER
COMING NEXT THE BIG 660

Better stop dreaming of the quiet life
’cause it’s the one we’ll never know
and quit running for that runaway bus
’cause those rosy days are few
and stop apologizing for things you’ve never done
’cause time is short and life is cruel
but it’s up to us to change

The song was the last hit written by ‘Tin Pan Alley’ songwriter Al Sherman.Sherman’s tune is derived from a violin melody from the final section of the overture to the Gioachino Rossini opera,Semiramide,these days they would call it sampling.In the UK the song became only the third ever Number 1 single in January 1953 of the then fledgling chart.
