Hey, does anyone know the name of this song and who performed it? It's been played during Animal House and other movies. It sounds like the song they play during towns in Willow for NES. I recorded the part I know of it right here:

Listen here!

Please let me know if you've heard of it.

thanks,
socetew

That would be ``Theme to a Summer Place'' words by Mack Discant, music by Max Steiner.

It's one of your more popular Hollywood Themes of all time, which is why you've probably heard it a million times.

Percy Faith and His Orchestra do the canonical instrumental version (that guy popularized more Hollywood themes than anyone else, I'm sure). The words are kinda dumb, so you don't hear them too often.

Details on the tune from http://www.sonymusic.com/artists/SoundtrackForACentury/ns4/track/1878.html:

    Music for submarine-race watching, as New York DJ Murray the K would have put it. In other words, a make-out classic, and the #1 single of 1959. Columbia found a way to tap the teen audience with an un-teen sound (save for those piano triplets) by associating with the racy Troy Donahue-Sandra Dee movie. With the success of this song, Percy Faith-arranger of numerous records for the label's pop roster-launched a lucrative sideline as an easy listening artist, adapting popular hits into languid instrumentals, and developing an LP-selling themes-for-young-lovers concept that lasted through the next decade.

Wow, tarnish, you rule!!! Can I quote what you said above on my web page? I won't include the quote you took from the sonymusic website. If you don't want me to quote you, then that's fine also.. just checking.

Thanks again for ending the mystery that has been bugging me actually for a few years now.

best,

socetew: by all means, quote me.

My Dad's got a huge collection of such shmaltzy shtuff on vinyl, including probably three or four different Percy Faith arrangements of that song.

Of course, now I'll have the damn tune stuck in my head for the rest of the day, but it is kinda catchy, huh?
Anyways, happy to have been some help.

Doesn't Abe Simpson's mate (forgotten the name) sing it when auditioning for the B-Sharps?

Jasper. My second favourite Jasper moment behind his getting his beard caught in the pencil sharpener.
