A-Z Music Challenge Day 8-H

Today is H.  I could really be  cheeky and use the same song I did for the music challenge on my last post since it was written by Tony Hatch,but this challenge should be about stretching me.

I went way back into the archives, and I found the operetta composer Victor Herbert.  I always loved the musical Naughty Marietta with Nelson Eddy and Jeanette MacDonald.  It was the first of their films I saw. My grandmother introduced me to this movie.

Here she is singing "The Italian Street Song" by Victor Herbert.  And you get to see a small portion of the movie.  I love how Nelson  Eddy coaxes the song out of her!!
