Smile though your heart is aching Smile even though it's breaking When there are clouds in the sky, you'll get by If you smile through your fears and sorrow Smile and maybe tomorrow You'll see the sun come shining through for you
Light up your face with gladness Hide every trace of sadness Although a tear may be ever so near That's the time you must keep on trying Smile, what's the use of crying You'll find that life is still worthwhile If you just smile
That's the time you must keep on trying Smile, what's the use of crying You'll find that life is still worthwhile If you just smile

Frederic from VirginiaSome years ago one of the teenage girls in our community was killed by her boyfriend. In the funeral service one of her girl friends sang this song, unaccompanied, from the organ loft in the rear of the church. It was one of the most moving moments of my 78 years.
Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn March 10th 1962, Ferrante & Teicher's instrumental covered version of "Smile" entered Billboard's Hot Top 100 chart at position #98; and the following week it rose to #95 and that was also its last week on the Top 100... And besides Mr. Bennett's, two other covered versions made the Top 100; Timi Yuro's peak at #42 in 1961 and in 1965 the version by Jerry Butler & Betty Everett's also reached #42.
"Pretty In Pink" by Psychedelic Furs was released in 1981. Five years later, it inspired a movie of the same name starring Molly Ringwald, Andrew McCarthy and Jon Cryer. The song was remixed for the re-release to have more Pop appeal.
