1950s EASY-POP Songs and Singers...on the verge of Rock 'n Roll
That’s Amore recorded by Dean Martin introduced November 14, 1953
Written by Harry Warren & Jack Brooks
Orchestra conducted by Dick Stabile
Probably the most famous 50s Italian love song, Dean Martin introduced his signature moon-hits-your-eye-like-a-big-pizza-pie tune in the film ‘The Caddy’ co-starring his comic partner Jerry Lewis. This fifties classic is one of scores of popular Italian songs from singers like Al Martino, Tony Martin, Jerry Vale, Vic Damone, Julius LaRosa, and the Gaylords.
Quintessential Fifties lyric:
"When the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie, that’s amore"
