Notes: ~ " Ask Perry Como which of all the songs he's recorded is his personal favourite,
and he'll answer: "Till the End of Time". Perhaps it's his sentimental favourite, but whatever
the reason, this is the tune that fully deserves Perry's admiration, because this is the one that
started it all. It launched his career as a major solo artist in 1945 and was the first of a continuing
string of 13 Gold Records. If it sounds familiar, perhaps you first heard it as
Chopin's Polonaise in A Flat, Op. 53. "
