Composer Richard Rodgers borrowed from himself for the melody for this lovely ballad from the show 'Me and Juliet'. The melody was originally a theme called Beneath the Southern Cross, which Rodgers had composed for 'Victory at Sea', the TV series about World War II. Perry's vocal version climaxes in a full-voiced high note ending that is superb singing and makes for dramatic listening. Como's tine control and the ease with which he soars to the top of his register, as critic Henry Pleasants noted, 'so easy, so natural, so inevitable. Como sings so well that few notice how well he sings.'
