Sometimes, there is a magnificence that seems ridiculous to even discuss. Such is the case with this video, which has Tony Bennett and Barbra Streisand performing the classic song "Smile", written by Charlie Chaplin. Well, Chaplin wrote the music for the soundtrack of his 1936 classic Modern Times. Eighteen years later, John Turner and Geoffrey Parsons wrote lyrics for the tune, first sung by the great Nat King Cole. It was also recorded by Bennett, released in 1959. And when Tony decided to add it to the Duets: An American Classic album, he chose another musical icon to sharer the song with. Here is Tony Bennett and Barbra Streisand singing "Smile".

"Smile" can be found on Duets: An American Classic on iTunes and Amazon.
