A simpering, whimpering child again



Many happy returns to one of the great survivors, Mr Vic Damone.

Celebrating his 84th birthday today, Vito Rocco Farinola was for many decades the mainstay of the Vegas crooner circuit, and in his heyday he was one of the biggest names in American pop.

With a catalogue of over 2,000 songs including An Affair to Remember, On The Street Where You Live, Gigi, Ebb Tide, Why Was I Born and You're Breaking My Heart, the man remained (and remains) wildly popular. He only (reluctantly) retired from performing ten years ago...

Here he is duetting with the much-missed Elizabeth Montgomery on Hollywood Palace in 1966, with a most appropriate number, given the lady's most famous role - Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered:


Magical!
