The New Wedding Song for 2007

Words written by the award winning team of Marilyn & Alan Bergman to some of the most beautiful music in the world created by legendary film composer Ennio Morricone (one of my favorites) who composed music to "The Untouchables", "Bugsy", "Cinema Paradiso" & "The Good, The Bad and The Ugly" to name just a few.

This song was sung with lyrics for the very first time by Celine Dion as a tribute to Ennio Morricone and his honorary oscar at the recent 79th Academy Awards. The lyrics are gorgeous and the music is timeless and I predict this will be on the "1st dance" list for many weddings in 2007.

I cry every time I hear this.

The original music is entitled "Deborah's Theme" from Sergio Leone's 1984 movie "Once Upon A Time in America" starring Robert DeNiro & James Woods which is a huge favorite of mine.

The Celine Dion version can be found on "We All Love Ennio Morricone", a "greatest hits" compilation featuring Celine, Chris Botti, Andrea Bocelli and many more.

Have a Stylish Day!
