Gene Wilder Singing "Pure Imagination"

Ok, I have to shamefully confess this was sparked by the recent AT&T commercials.  I guess whatever movie company made "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory" has the rights to this???  I think the thanks should be mainly to Gene Wilder, because only he could sing the song like this.  It really makes me feel like I was age 5--10 and when many things in the world seem so fresh.  As you get older those fresh feelings become more rare and treasured.  This song and performance gives me that feeling.  Ironically I hate the movie.
Lyrics & Music by: Leslie Bricusse and
Anthony Newley;  Performed by Gene Wilder
