This is another one of those songs that gets lost in the confusion of similar titles. Mention this one, and most people think of the Bobby Vinton tune that reached #3 1974 -- but the actual title of that one is "My Melody of Love". Some will also think of an Ames Brothers tune which reached #5 in 1957, which had this as the subtitle; the actual title of that one is "Melodie d'Amour." Another oddity about this song is the huge gap between when the music was written (1903) and when the lyrics were added by Tom Glazer (1954).
