Percy Faith & His Orchestra - The Theme From "A Summer Place" (1960)

submitted by mrm123 on 05/19/16 1

Nine consecutive weeks at #1 in 1960, The Theme From "A Summer Place" by Percy Faith and His Orchestra still holds the record as the longest-running instrumental smash hit on US charts. It remains an immortal romantic classic that has never failed to captivate three generations of music lovers. It is a song for lovers, through both the good and the bad times. The film you are about to watch on this video is NOT from the movie of the same name, nor is it even from any theatrical film, but from a long-forgotten documentary short. The only thing missing from this music video that was in the film "A Summer Place" are the dysfunctional parents quarreling with their kids and with each other. And of course the Percy Faith version of the song never appeared in the movie anyway. My video demonstrates what the right kind of film editing can do in two-and-half minutes with the best moments of just about any public domain short, especially with one of the loveliest romantic melodies in music history as the soundtrack. Never to be forgotten, here is a moment forever frozen in time ... haunting and nostalgic in all its unrivalled beauty, Percy Faith's Theme From "A Summer Place."
