There are so many versions. I like Cat Power's and Tom Waits'.

my discovery of the day. How? A simple factoid on Steve Wright's big show. Question was posed who wrote the music for the song "Smile" probably made most famous by Nat King Cole.
Answer...Charles Chaplin no less. The tune appeared in his score for the film "Modern Times".
In an earlier film of Chaplin's City Lights which he also wrote much of the score for, this composition by Jose Padilla Sanchez "La Violeterra" also was used. I quite like it....not often a bit of Spanish music appears on the PE Jukebox! Many versions

If you prefer the words Nicole Croisille et Pierre Barouh supply the vocals on this version

These are a little more "French" from the film "Une Homme et Une Femme" dug out from the PE Jukebox Archive
