It's truly too bad the Internet wasn't around 30 years ago. Many wonderful, classic romantic movies don't have websites praising them, or their soundtracks, and that's just a shame. At least the music from some of these classic films are still around, and available on CD.
1.) "Romantic Duets From MGM Classics" - Various Artists
This CD contains 21 tracks consisting of some true romantic classics. Who can resist singing along to such classics as Bing Crosby's "True Love," from "High Society," or "For Me and My Gal's" title tune, song by Gene Kelly?
