"Irving Berlin, who is in a position to know about such things, once said that songs should be written to be heard rather than to be sung. This is a fine and subtle distinction — but it is a distinction that is made illuminatingly clear by Perry Como. More than any other singer of popular songs, Como has a happy faculty for giving the impression that he is really not singing at all, that nothing actually stands in the way between the listener and the song."
