Matt Monro sings 'Softly as I Leave You' (with lyrics) Matt Monro was one of Britain’s most iconic singers. He recorded the very first James Bond Theme song –‘From Russia With Love’ – represented Britain in the Eurovision Song contest in 1964 with ‘I Love the Little Things’ (in Copenhagen) – finishing second - and had many international hits which included ‘Born Free’, ‘Walk Away’, and ‘Portrait of My Love’. Matt died on 7 February 1985 aged 54 and only 5 days after receiving a telegram from Frank Sinatra which said: “Sorry to hear that you've taken ill and hope you'll soon be on the mend and up and about. I send you love and prayers. Your fellow boy singer, Frank Sinatra" Frank Sinatra said of Matt: "His pitch was right on the nose: his word enunciation letter perfect: his understanding of a song thorough. “He will be missed very much, not only by myself, but by his fans all over the world."

Matt Monro - Softly As I Leave You Softly, I will leave you softly For my heart would break if you should wake and see me go So I leave you softly, long before you miss me Long before your arms can beg me stay For one more hour or one more day After all the years, I can't bear the tears to fall So, softly as I leave you there Softly, long before you miss me Long before your arms can beg me stay For one more hour or one more day After all the years, I can't bear the tears to fall So, softly as I leave you there As I leave I you there As I leave I you there

"Softly, as I Leave You" is a popular Italian song composed by Giorgio Calabrese and Tony De Vita (1932--1998), translated into English by Hal Shaper. It was originally an Italian success by Mina, at the Sanremo Music Festival, entitled "Piano" ("Softly"). Mina published a recording of the song first as a single in 1960 and later as well on an EP and on three LPs. The English songwriter Hal Shaper noticed the song and in November 1961 wrote English lyrics to the melody, calling it "Softly, as I Leave You." The best-known versions are those by Matt Monro (#10 on the British charts in 1962)[1] and Frank Sinatra (#27 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #4 on the adult contemporary chart in 1964).[2] The Sinatra family announced Frank's death on May 14, 1998 by placing an announcement on their website that was accompanied by a recording of the singer's version of the song. When he performed the song live in Las Vegas, Elvis Presley prefaced with a story about the origins of the song. Presley said the song originated when a man was dying and his wife was sitting by his bedside. As she began to doze off, he felt himself beginning to die and he wrote the words to the song on a notepad. However, Elvis insiders claim that his explanation for the song was merely an example of Presley's flair for storytelling, so his explanation is most likely apocryphal. Elvis said he heard the story "from some people in Florida." Elvis doesn't actually sing this song; he speaks the words while his Irish backing tenor Sherrill Nielsen sings it. Elvis's one recorded version of this song was a bootleg made by a fan in Las Vegas in December 1975. RCA was able to release it commercially later and it now appears on the boxed set "Walk A Mile In My Shoes: The Essential 70's Masters."

Elvis tells the story behind as well as sings the lyrics of the song, "Softly as I leave You". The man singing in the background is Elvis` tenor singer, Sherrill (Shaun)Nielsen. In 1977, Elvis' and Sherrill's duet of "Softly As I Leave You" was nominated for a Grammy as duet of the year. This is truly a very sad but beautiful story sung as it should be which is, in my opinion, the best rendition and which is done by Elvis.This song and "Memories" are his most beautiful and underrated songs. This video is a composite of three other videos found on Youtube, 2 of which are of Elvis and one with excerpts from a video of the movie, "The Notebook". I edited & spliced the 3 videos and added the lyrics. The still photos where captured from "The Notebook" video used in this video. I tried to capture the idea of a woman who misses her husband and still trying to hold back the tears as she recounts memories, even after many decades. The images of the man rowing away( figuratively crossing over the River Styx) are what her husband sees and the sadness & loneliness he feels as he passes away. The white birds flying away at the end signal his departure and guide his spirit once he reached the 'Other Side'. These were the images I saw as I imagined him as he passed away.

1968 (Shirley Bassey recorded a beautiful POP rendition of the song, 'Softly As I Leave You' on her 1968 LP titled, 'This Is My Life.' ABOUT the LP, This Is My Life: This Is My Life is a 1968 album by Shirley Bassey. The mid to late sixties was a period of declining popularity for traditional pop. How much the changing tastes in popular music directly affected Bassey's record sales is difficult to quantify; but her record sales had been faltering since the latter part of the mid 60s, and the album failed to chart. (Bassey did have some success in Italy during this period, where she recorded several songs in Italian, with two making the Top 40 there). The version of "This Is My Life" appearing on side two is the English-only version, with lyrics by Norman Newell, and would become one of Bassey's signature songs. Looking back over the years, I for one am happy that Shirley recorded this LP, with it's wide mix of beautiful traditional POP songs, including this song. And, as stated above the emotional block buster song recorded for this LP, 'This Is My Life' became a perinnial favorite by Shirley's fans and for many years she closed her shows with it. With that said, Shirley is one of those artists with such tremendous vocal ability that she was easily able to sing a wider variety of songs, with many of them contemporary in genre. In a little over a year after this LP came out Shirley would hit again, over and over again, and the 1970's would become one of her most successful decades, both monetary and fluentially with quite a few world wide tours. In addition to Shirley, this song has been recorded by quite a few artists over the years, including Frank Sinatra (Chairman Of The Board), Bobby Darin, Cliff Richard, Eydie Gorme, The Letterman, Michael Buble, Lena Horne, and Robert Goulet. Elvis Presley would say the words to this song as his backup singers sang it. I like every version of this song by every artist. This picture clip include the wonderful leading actors/actresses who are no longer with us. Some of them had their lives cut so short....it was too soon to lose them. LYRICS: Softly, I will leave you softly For my heart would break If you should wake and see me go So I leave you softly long before you miss me Long before your arms can make me stay For one more hour or one more day After all the years I can't bear the tears to fall So softly as I leave you there Softly, long before you miss me Long before your arms can make me stay For one more hour or one more day After all the years I can't bear the tears to fall So softly as I leave you there As I leave you there, as I leave you there Special Thanks to Pieter, Astrid and others from the Shirley Bassey blog, Tal from the Diamond Bassey website, and all those who have contributed wonderful pictures of Shirley!

Dominick sings and plays the piano in this very beautiful song composed by Antonio De Vita (1932--1998), with original Italian lyrics by Giorgio Calabrese. The English songwriter Hal Shaper noticed the song and in November 1961 wrote English lyrics to the melody, calling it "Softly, as I Leave You". It is best known in versions by Matt Monro (#10 on the British charts in 1962, Monro had US "Bubbling Under the Top 100" entries in Billboard in 1962 and 1964), and Frank Sinatra (#27 on Billboard Hot 100 in 1964). It is a first attempt at compiling a video over the internet for me, the audio a little grainy but watch for future endeavors! photos by Anna T.
