Notes: ~ originally from the 1952 Hollywood musical "One Minute to Zero" but the album credits this song to the 1957 film "Istanbul" which starred Errol Flynn, Cornell Borchers, John Bentley, Torin Thatcher and Nat King Cole who sings this song. It was no doubt Nat King Cole's performance in this movie, and on record, which inspired the selection of "When I Fall in Love" for the "Saturday Night With Mr. C." album in 1958. Mr. Como's recording would have been among the first in full stereophonic sound. Doris Day and Jeri Southern also recorded the song and it was revived by The Lettermen in 1962. In 1992 Canada's Celine Dion and Clive Griffin performed this song for the soundtrack of "Sleepless In Seattle" and as a hit single following. By the 1990's, however, the original concept of a "hit single" had lost all meaning and there was no longer a simple definition of exactly what this meant.
