Nevertheless, the song played over and over and over in my head (and my tape deck) for
days on end and insisted that I create a Holmes & Watson fanvid.
So, here's the result:
On the Street Where You Live
(.wmv format).The song you hear is from the original Broadway cast of "My Fair

The clips are from "The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes,"
starring Jeremy Brett and David Burke.
