Johnny Mathis - Love Story (Where Do I Begin) download album
Where do I begin To tell a story of how great a love can be, The sweet love story that is older than the sea, The simple truth about the love she brings to me? Where do I start? With her first hello She gave a meaning to this empty world of mine There'd never be another love, another time She came into my life and made the living fine. She fills my heart, She fills my heart with very special things With angel songs, with wild imaginings She fills my soul with so much love That anywhere I go I'm never lonely With her along who could be lonely?
(Where Do I Begin?) Love Story" is a popular song published in 1970, with music by Francis Lai and lyrics by Carl Sigman. The song was first introduced as an instrumental theme in the 1970 film Love Story after the film's distributor, Paramount Pictures, rejected the first set of lyrics that were written. Andy Williams eventually recorded the new lyrics and took the song to number nine on Billboard magazine's Hot 100 and number one on their Easy Listening chart.
Album: Johnny Mathis: Love Songs, Original Release Date: 1964. To tell the story of how great a love can be The sweet love story that is older than the sea The simple truth about the love he brings to me Where do I start? Like a summer rain That cools the pavement with a patent leather shine He came into my life and made the living fine And gave a meaning to this empty world of mine He fills my heart.
Johnny Mathis (album). Where Do I Begin?) Love Story. Where Do I Begin (song). John Royce "Johnny" Mathis (born September 30, 1935) is an American singer of popular music and jazz. Johnny Mathis has sold well over 350 million records worldwide, according to Guinness Book of World Records writer and charts music historian Paul Gambaccini and other sources. This makes Mathis the third biggest selling artist of the 20th century. Although he is frequently described as a romantic singer, his discography includes jazz, traditional pop, Brazilian music, Spanish music, soul music, rhythm and blues, soft rock, Broadway theatre, Tin Pan Alley standards, some blues and country songs, and even a few disco songs for his album Mathis Magic in 1979.
The Love Story album from Johnny Mathis is one of his most realized, produced during a decade when he worked with producers ranging from Richard Perry and Jerry Fuller to one of the proponents of the Philly sound, Thom Bell. Here the singer is in a comfortable setting with producer Jack Gold, ably assisted by arranger and conductor Perry Botkin, Jr. a couple of years before Botkin hit with "Nadia's Theme (The Young & the Restless). His rendition of "(Where Do I Begin) Love Story" is riveting, a sweeping and majestic piece to lead off the record, and not the usual Jack Gold musical movement, but more pronounced and determined. The Top Ten hit, of course, went to Andy Williams in 1971, with Henry Mancini going Top 15 and Francis Lai taking the same title Top 35, all in the same year.
