Barbra Streisand's "The Way We Were" topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart for one week in 1974, back in the day when they made extraordinary music. Like it or not, this is an amazing song to train your vocals with. So much so that I now use this song to coach some of my students. Please have a listen to the marvelous Barbra Streisand in one of her best live performances of her career. See the way she expresses herself in demeanor -- and voice. You may download lyrics to this song from Seek Lyrics and Google for MP3 downloads of the song.
