Mattinata! (Mantovani) (Lyrics + Song/Artist Info) Romantic 4K Music Video Album! H.D.

You’re breaking my heart ’cause you’re leaving
You’ve fallen for somebody new
It isn’t too easy believing
You’d leave after all we’ve been through?

It’s breaking my heart to remember
The dreams we depended upon
Your leaving is slow dying ember
I’ll miss you my love when you’re gone!

I wish you joy though tear drops burn
But if some day you should care to return
Please hurry back and we’ll make a new start
Til then you’re breaking my heart…



You’re Breaking My Heart (Mattinata) + Maria Elena & Maria!


Mattinata was the first song ever written expressly for the Gramophone Company (the present day HMV). Composed by Ruggero Leoncavallo in 1904, this song was dedicated to Enrico Caruso, who was the first to record it in 1904 with the composer at the piano. Ever since, this piece has become a concert favorite.

More than a half-century later this song was recorded by Italian-born tenor Sergio Franchi on his American-debut album, Romantic Italian Songs (RCA Victor Red Seal, 1962). In only three months, Franchi’s album of mostly Neapolitan favorites songs placed number seventeen on the Billboard Top 200. Thirty-six years later (eight years after Franchi’s death) the same album placed number one hundred sixty-seven on the Billboard 200.

This song with above lyrics was also sung by Dean Martin and appears on the album Dino: Italian Love Songs (1962).



Mantovani (1905 – 1980), was an Anglo-Italian conductor, composer and light orchestra-styled entertainer with a cascading strings musical signature. The book British Hit Singles & Albums states that he was “Britain’s most successful album act before the Beatles…the first act to sell over one million stereo albums and have six albums simultaneously in the US Top 30 in 1959”.

Author Joseph Lanza describes Mantovani’s string arrangements as the most “rich and mellifluous” of the emerging light music style during the early 1950s. He stated that Mantovani was a leader in the use of new studio technologies to “create sound tapestries with innumerable strings”, and that “the sustained hum of Mantovani’s reverberated violins produced a sonic vaporizer foreshadowing the synthesizer harmonics of space music.” His style survived through an ever-changing variety of musical styles prompting Variety to call him “the biggest musical phenomenon of the twentieth century”. – Wikipedia

Each one of us needs to look after the good of the
people around us, asking ourselves, “How can I help?”
That’s exactly what Jesus did. He didn’t make it easy
for Himself by avoiding people’s troubles, but waded
right in and helped out.
