BONUS #1 - Theme From A Summer Place - Percy Faith
BONUS #2 - Theme From A Summer Place - Andy Williams, 1962
"Theme from A Summer Place"is a song with lyrics by Mack Discant and music by Max Steiner, written for the 1959 film A Summer Place, which starred Sandra Dee and Troy Donahue. It was recorded for the film by Hugo Winterhalter. Originally known as the "Molly and Johnny Theme", the piece is not the main title theme of the film, but a love theme for the characters played by Dee and Donahue.
Percy Faithrecorded the most popular version of the tune in the Columbia 30th Street Studio in New York City, which spent an at-the-time record of nine consecutive weeks at number one on the still-young Billboard Hot 100 singles chart in early 1960. It remains the longest-running number-one instrumental in the history of the chart. It reached number two in the UK. It hit number one in Italy under the title "Scandalo Al Sole".
Faith won aGrammy Award for Record of the Year in 1961 for his recording. This was the first movie theme and the first instrumental to win a Record of the Year Grammy.
Faith re-recorded the song twice – first, in 1969, as a female choral version, then, in 1976, as adisco version titled "Summer Place '76".
In 2008, Faith's original version was ranked at number eighteen onBillboard's top 100 songs during the first fifty years of the Hot 100 chart...
