Great song, great singer, but not the genuine original version...
on 6 December 2013
No disrespect to the old crooner himself, but not the ORIGINAL version. I prefer the genuine original (written by Jule Styne in 1945) which was sung by talented Vaughn Monroe which then reached No.1 on the Billboard music chart. This version can be heard during the end credits of the 'Die Hard' movie starring Bruce Willis.
Obviously respect for the song goes a long way, being also recorded by:
Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass, Ed Ames, Michael Bolton, Garth Brooks, Michael Bublé, The Carpenters, Chicago, Patsy Cline, Ray Conniff Singers, Bing Crosby, Doris Day, Gloria Estefan, Kenny G, Vince Gill, Manhattan Transfer, Dean Martin, Johnny Mathis, Marie Osmond, Cliff Richard, Carly Simon, The Three Tenors, Twisted Sister, Andy Williams, and many many more...
and wonderful I'm sure they all are.
