About The Loveliest Night of the Year

"The Loveliest Night of the Year" is a popular song. The music was first published as a waltz called "Sobre las olas" ("Over the Waves") in 1888 written by Juventino P. Rosas. In 1950 the music was adapted by Irving Aaronson with lyrics by Paul Francis Webster for the movie The Great Caruso. It was sung by Ann Blyth. Later Mario Lanza recorded it, and it became one of the most popular songs of 1951 reaching No 3 in the US Billboard Charts. Lanza received his third Gold Disc for this song. The instrumental version of the song is often associated with magicians performing their "magical tricks" and with flying trapeze acts, with which it is often played in the background, especially in animated cartoons. It is so commonly associated with these entertainments as to be iconic, although few people know it by its real name.

When you are in love
It's the lovliest night of the year
Stars twinkle above
And you almost can touch them from here
Words fall in to rhyme
Any time you are holding me near
When you are in love
It's the lovliest night of the year
Waltzing along in the blue
Like a breeze drifting over the sand
Thrilled by the wonder of you
And the wonderful touch of your hand
And my heart starts to beat
Like a child when a birthday is near
So, kiss me my sweet,
It's the lovliest night of the year

When you are in love
It's the lovliest night of the year
Stars twinkle above
And you almost can touch them from here
Words fall in to rhyme
Any time you are holding me near
When you are in love
It's the lovliest night of the year
Waltzing along in the blue
Like a breeze drifting over the sand
Thrilled by the wonder of you
And the wonderful touch of your hand
And my heart starts to beat
Like a child when a birthday is near
So, kiss me my sweet,
It's the lovliest night of the year
