Musical Interlude: Wind Beneath My Wings (1988)

From the movie, "Beaches", here's the Divine Miss M herself, Bette Midler, with a cover of Gary Morris' "Wind Beneath My Wings", which had previously been covered by the late Lou Rawls.

13 years later, the WWE attempted to parody the song on Monday Night Raw by having Stephanie McMahon lead a chorus in "Wind Beneath Our Ring", in tribute to Stone Cold Steve Austin. As bad karaoke goes, this was one for the books, but Stephanie wasn't any worse than Roseanne Barr's mangling of the "Star Spangled Banner". Then again, ham acting and bad singing run in the McMahon family. Maybe I'll post it up sometime......
