‘Be My Love’ was made famous by Mario Lanza when he starred in the 1950s film The Toast of New Orleans.
Until I did a little research about the song, I had no idea he died at the age of 38. His legacy lingers on though as many Fantoines, of a certain age, remember Lanza’s music being played in their childhood homes.
It’s probably safe to suggest that the present new generation being introduced to the world will have a similar memory in 50 years, but the name will have changed. They will say, “My Mum/Dad used to play Jonathan Antoine all the time”.
Already we’ve had a feast for the soul with tracks 1, 2, 3 and 4. We now have to wait to hear what more pleasure awaits us on this album.
