    Sherman Was The Soundtrack Of My Childhood

     

    Robert Sherman passed away two days ago at 86 years old. Is there a baby boomer kid out there that does not love his beautiful songs that were incorporated into Movies, Film, TV and Books?

     

    With Mary Poppins, The Jungle Book, The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, The Slipper and the Rose, and the theme park song of "It's a Small World (After All)", he was the soundtrack of my growing up.

     

    He was born in New York City, but he attended high school here at the legendary Beverly Hills High School.

     

    Mr Sherman became a songwriter, producer, and screenwriter, but he was also an honored World War II Vet: He received two Battle Stars, a Combat Infantryman Badge, an American Campaign Medal, a World War II Victory Medal, a European-African-Middle Eastern Campaign Medal and a Good Conduct Medal.

     

    Sherman and his brother Richard were two of the greatest songwriters of all time.

    My all time featured musicals from them are 'Mary Poppins' and 'Chitty Chitty Bang Bang', both of which I saw in Germany as a kid in the 60's.

     

    Robert B. Sherman died in London on March 5, 2012, the cause of his passing has not been released.

     

    It's a smaller world without him now..."After All"...Rest In Peace Robert, your music will live on forever...
