Italian Teodoro Cottrau wrote this number in 1850. Elvis's version was sung in "Love In Las Vegas" (US title "Viva Las Vegas"), but not issued on film soundtrack EP. The text used by Elvis is the most common, but is not the original, which was written in a Neapolitan dialect. Giannini's original was recorded on Berliner. Giannini was a Italian tenor who emigrated to the USA in 1885 to become one of the first singers to be recorded on disc in 1896. See also "No More."
