Ohh

Our love affair is a wondrous thing
That we'll rejoice in remembering
Our love was born with our first embrace
And a page was torn out of time and space

Our love affair, may it always be
A flame to burn through eternity
So take my hand with a fervent prayer
That we may live and we may share
A love affair to remember

So take my hand with a fervent prayer




That we may live and we may share
A love affair to remember

"Music to soothe the savage breast, soften rocks, and bend the
knotted oak."

"Music so glorious, beautiful, and profound
that it could create a soul of under the ribs of death."
John Milton

I regret that I lack the time to read through all of the marvelous remarks. But among those which I did read, my favorites are: "A hymn of love," "The intro was like entering the "Kingdom of Heaven," and "The song broke the little heart inside my heart."
This immortal performance
belongs
in the Pantheon of the greatest recodings of all time, produced in an era when deep romantic love was infinitely more sought after and desired than
sex.

Undoubtedly one of the best romantic ballads ever delivered by Vic Damone, smooth, warm and effortless. No other version holds a candle to this.
