“April is a promise that May is bound to keep.”
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
There's just something about April.....
BONUS - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EZHHHOoWSsI - Pat Boone - April Love, 1957
|"April Love" is a
popular song with
music by Sammy Fain
and lyrics by
Webster. It was written as the
theme song for a 1957
film of the same name starring
Pat Boone and
and directed by Henry
In the film, the Pat Boone character, Nick Conover, leaves Chicago after being put on probation for stealing a car. Living and working on the Kentucky farm of his uncle Jed Bruce and his aunt Henrietta, he falls in love with a neighbour's daughter, played by Shirley Jones. In the same way that Boone is often criticised for singing watered-down versions of rhythm and blues songs, the film April Love can be seen as a milder version of James Dean's Rebel Without a Cause (1955) or Marlon Brando's The Wild One (1955).
Helped by the release of the film, "April Love" became a number-one hit in the United States for Pat Boone in December 1957. In 1958, it was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Music, Original Song.
