Caterina Valente singing  The Breeze And I.
Caterina Valente (b. January 14,  1931, Paris, France) was born into an  Italian circus family. Her mother was a  clown and her father was an accordion  player; as a child she worked in the  circus as well. She performed in Europe  as a singer for several years, but her  career as an internationally known  vocalist began in 1953 when she joined  Kurt Edelhagen's band in Germany. She  was soon signed to Polydor and made her  recording debut for them the same year.  Her first big hits came soon after that. Two songs written for her by Cuban  composer Ernesto Lecuona charted in  Europe and eventually England and the  U.S. "Malaguena" was her first big hit,  followed by "Analucia" which when  re-released in an English version as  "The Breeze and I" became a top ten hit  in both the U.K. and the U.S.

hydropolite: i/m not sure when this song came out but i associate it with summer circa 1955 - the most popular summer song recently is Umbrellas by Rihanna - when it comes to pop culture (especially music) the new millenium is a COMPLETE RIPOFF ....
