Bluedreamer's Choice No 3

"From a Distance" is a ballad song written in 1985 by American singer-songwriter Julie Gold. The song then became an international commercial success after it was recorded in 1990 by Bette Midler for the album Some People's Lives, peaking at #2 on the Billboard Hot 100, and went on to win a Grammy for Song of the Year in 1991. Bette Midler re-recorded a Christmas version for her 2006 Christmas Album, Cool Yule, with additional lyrics by Midler, Robbie Buchanan and Jay Landers. Additional recordings of the original have been performed by Gold, Griffith, Simon Nicol (of Fairport Convention) and many others. The song has also been sung by a number of children's school choirs. Much of the song's popularity coincided with the first Persian Gulf War.
The song also won a "3 Million Airs Award" from Broadcast Music Incorporated.
