I must have looked silly when I used to sing this as a little girl and now when it's relevant I can no longer sing. Still love it tho'.
It was written in 1934 - music Sigmund Romberg lyrics Oscar Hammerstein. I listened to Gracie Fields, Nelson Eddy, Linda Ronstedt and Nat King Cole - then chose this one.

How on earth could you ever look silly? Pshaw and harrumph indeed. I'm sure you sounded wonderful.

Thanks for sharing this wonderful melody. I had never heard of it.

Madame D: my voice was OK but it wasn't really a suitable song for a six year old.

Sunshine: careful - you may find it sticks in your head:)

I've always loved this song, and in truth, for me--it almost doesn't matter who sings it...!
Sweet, Pat, Very Very Sweet.

Finally, I've had a chance to listen.
Now I'm crying! It's so beautiful and poignant and romantic.

My best best friend tells me that people should sing, no matter how old we are, no matter if we sound good or bad. He says not enough people sing anymore. So sing, Pat, sing for all you're worth and more.
