"Tonight We Love"

OK, more pop tunes inspired by the classics: Tenor saxophonist and bandleader Freddy Martin's biggest hit was this 1941 adaptation of the first movement of Tchaikovsky's Piano Concerto No. 1 in B-flat minor, Op. 23. First recorded instrumentally, lyrics were soon added and it was re-recorded with Clyde Roger on vocals.

Yesterday's answer: "Could It Be Magic?" by Barry Manilow.
