Someone once said that Perry Como sings every
song as if it had been written just for him. That's easy to say — but
very hard to do. Perry does it every time.
Several million other "someones" have
remarked that Perry makes you feel he's singing for you alone. That's also
very hard to do. Perry has been doing it since he was a young,
inexperienced singer. It's a quality you have to be born with. Call it
sincerity, warmth, personality — whatever you like. It's the
"X" quality that makes a star. Experience can teach you all the tricks
of the singer's trade, and Perry knows them all. But what made him — and
keeps him — a great star is the ability to make you feel he's singing
for you alone.
If the mood is romantic ( the mood of the songs
in this album ) the interpretations are especially appealing when the
singer has Perry Como's gift of intimacy and individual rapport — this
singing for you alone quality. It seems you "feel" as well as
"hear" when Perry delineates a love song, whether it be a
"tried and true" memorable like Carolina Moon and You'll Always
Be My Lifetime Sweetheart, or a fresh, bright lilt'er from among his
biggest-selling record hits, Juke Box Baby. All of these tunes are very
special — from Perry Como to you.
"Somebody Loves Me," sings Perry.
Several million "sombodies," we'd say.
