A kiss is still a kiss
A sigh is just a sigh
The fundamental things apply
As time goes by
And when two lovers woo
They still say "I love you"
On that you can rely
No matter what the future brings
As time goes by
Moonlight and love songs never out of date..."
True to the lyrics of the first track, "As Time Goes By," moonlight and love songs are never out of date. They are eternal. They are endless. And they never go out of style. This delightful soundtrack consists of twelve beautiful and timeless love songs to warm the heart as interpreted by various talented artists.
The last track is the cream of the crop, "When I Fall In Love," a compositon by Victor Young and Edward Heyman. Celine Dion and Clive Griffin rendered this duet beautifully. This classic has been recorded and performed by numerous singers and musicians but I must admit that this is one of the best versions I've ever heard. This timeless song is one of my all-time favorites and also my wedding "first dance" song. Celine and Clive's great voices blended perfectly and the arrangement by Jeremy Lubbock is simply marvelous. This is one gem of a song.
"When I fall in love, it will be forever
or I'll never fall in love
In a restless world like this is
love has ended before it's begun
And too many moonlight kisses
seem to cool in the warmth of the sun
If I give my heart, it will be completely
or I'll never give my heart
And the moment I can feel that
You feel that way too
Is when I fall in love with you...Read more ›
The words in the songs are as important in the movie as the acting. The music unites the lovers even though they are living far apart. The two lovers have a shared love of sweet songs and are meant for each other..
"As Time Goes By" tells of how the world will always welcome lovers. "StarDust" tells the story of how stars remind the lovers that they are apart. Perhaps even looking up and seeing the same star. "In the Wee Small Hours of the Morning" is performed wonderfully by Carly Simon. Her voice reminds me of satin sheets.
"Bye Bye Blackbird" is bittersweet as Joe Coker sings of how no one understands him. The songs almost go through each characters mind as they sit 3000 miles apart in the moonlight
"A Wink and A Smile" is a delicious, happy song about life just being a dream and falling in love at first sight. "An Affair to Remember" is filled with absolute longing. "Make Someone Happy" breaks the sad spell and tells of how if you make someone happy, you will be happy too.
"When I Fall in Love." Sigh, what can I say? This is my favorite song of all time. Performed by Celine Dion and Clive Griffin. What could be more dreamy?
Love makes the unpredictable mystery of life worth living. It is an oasis in a restless word where relationships often end before they have ever had time to begin.
Music for the Heart.
~The Rebecca Review
Such lovely, winsome, romantic and even some sad songs. I know the movie well and as I listen to this album I can often see the scene it pertains to in my mind's eye.
For me, this soundtrack brings back the feeling of the movie ... which is equal parts sad, hopeful and sweet.
The song 'Stardust' by Nat King Cole stops me in my tracks and causes me to become very quiet and thoughtful.
'Back in the Saddle Again' by Gene Autry brings a smile to my face as I envision Tom Hanks making that call to Victoria (the hyena)! Cute scene.
'Makin' Whoopee' is also a cute song that makes me smile because I remember the scene in the movie. Funny.
One of my favorite songs is 'A Wink and a Smile'. Incredibly performed by Harry Connick Jr.
In summary, really terrific, light-hearted soundtrack. Even if you are unfamiliar with the movie, this album is worth owning.

The range of songs is great. I'm old enough to remember Jimmy Durante singing As Time Goes By and Stardust by Nat King Cole takes me back to when I received a simple metal music... Read morePublished 10 days ago by Ellen Merritt
