Mario Lanza, yes Mario Lanza!

#1
Born in 1921, he never made it to the heady heights, but he'd be 85 years old today!

He changed his name early on, but his talent as a singer was evident from an early age. It was only when he starred in the filum ""The Great Caruso" that he got the recognition he deserved:

He recorded many songs, among them this, and oi musst admit dat mee oiyes was shoor moist as oi hoord it! Tis an absolutely gorgeous voice the man has!

Although American by birth, Mario Lanza was really more comfortable in his native Italian. I defy any comparison to Pavarotti in this song! It's also from the filum "The Great Caruso".

A most wonderful voice that's sadly been somehow forgotten.
