The Songs I Love (album)
The Songs I Love was Perry Como's 11th RCA Victor 12" long-play album, the ninth recorded in full "living" stereophonic sound and the first featuring Dynagroove technology.
Perry Como hosted an hour-long program on NBC TV until 1963, the year that Songs I Love was released. A regular feature of the show was that Como would croon a favorite song while seated on a distinctive set that spelled out "Mr. C." A photo of the set adorns the cover of Songs I Love, and the album aims to reproduce the effect of that segment (which producers Hugo & Luigi describe as "one of the few great traditions in television") over a dozen soft ballads such as "Fly Me to the Moon (In Other Words)" and "This Is All I Ask." The leadoff track, "The Songs I Love", sets the tone for everything that follows, and, not surprisingly, it turns out that pop standards are the songs Como loves. The Songs I Love was a commercially successful album aimed at fans of The Perry Como Show, to whom it is recommended.

Famous quotes containing the words songs and/or love:
“When I am dead, my dearest, Sing no sad songs for me;
Plant thou no roses at my head, Nor shady cypress tree:
Be the green grass above me With showers and dewdrops wet;
And if thou wilt, remember, And if thou wilt, forget.”
—Christina Georgina Rossetti (18301894)
“The childless experts on child raising also bring tears of laughter to my eyes when they say, I love children because theyre so honest. There is not an agent in the CIA or the KGB who knows how to conceal the theft of food, how to fake being asleep, or how to forge a parents signature like a child.”
—Bill Cosby (20th century)
