Good Morning from a very wet Wales :-) :-)


I loved Gene Pitney.
I had wanted to go to see his concert when he came to Wales, but didn't. Then he died in a hotel in Cardiff halfway through his tour on April 5th 2006! Very Sad! :-( :-(

Hello anyone looking in on the Alphabetical Songs Thread :-)

As I'm in Welsh mode following the Wales v South Africa Rugby Match this evening-


This most beautiful of Welsh songs is a firm favourite with Welsh Male Voice Choirs.
Composed by Joseph Parry and first published in 1875. Parry wrote the music to lyrics written by Richard Davies ('Mynyddog'; 1833–77)

The lyrics in both Welsh and the English translation can be read on Wikipedia and can be listened to on YouTube.

Nancy with the laughing face .... Frank Sinatra


JemimaFawr Report 11 Nov 2013 13:46

Hi Mike.:-)

I'd never heard that song- so intrigued, I Googled it and listened to it on YouTube :-) .

Origin of the Song C/P from Wikipedia

Former broadcast executive and music historian Rick Busciglio tells the story of the song's inception as related to him by Van Heusen:

"In 1979, I was working with songwriter Jimmy Van Heusen on a TV special with Frank Sinatra and Bob Hope that was never produced.
Jimmy told me that one day (circa 1942) he and his lyricist Johnny Burke were working at 20th Century-Fox composing for a film. While Burke was out of their writer's bungalow, Phil Silvers, the comedian, a friend to both, entered and suggested to Jimmy that they write a song for Johnny's wife, Bessie, who was soon to celebrate a birthday. Silvers provided the lyrics, later revised by Van Heusen and Burke.
At the party they sang "Bessie... with the laughing face." It was such a hit that they used it at other female birthday events.

When they sang it as "Nancy... with the laughing face" at little Nancy Sinatra's birthday party, Frank broke down and cried thinking that it was written specially for his daughter - the trio wisely didn't correct him. Jimmy assigned his royalties to Nancy after Frank recorded it for Columbia."
