Pronunciation of "Felice"?[edit]

Does anyone know how Felice pronounced her (nick)name or how Boudleaux pronounced it when addressing her? If not, then in the absence of any direct evidence about how either or both of them said it, what would the best hypothesis be?

Specifically, would "Felice", when used by an American whose name weakly suggests some French ancestry ("weakly" because he may have merely had fanciful parents -- see the misspelling of "Diodorus") in order to address someone from an Italian family, be pronounced as it would if it were a French word (rhymes w/ "Maurice", etc.) or the Italian pronunciation (rhymes w/ "semplice", etc)? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 20:15, 11 January 2011 (UTC)

If I may add a suggestion, if you can't find out, please don't guess. Too many guesses and speculations cropping up in wiki articles these days. Tx. Interesting idea though! Billyshiverstick (talk) 19:13, 5 August 2012 (UTC)

Who wrote what?[edit]

This one might be tough to research. The article on "Love Hurts" lists the song writer as Boudleaux Bryant, not Felice and Boudleaux Bryant.

Did they register the songs as a Lennon-McCartney style songwriting team, or individually?

This list is confusing, as it lists all the popular songs "either or both" of them wrote, not A, B or A+B.

Unfortunately, what seems to be filtering out there is Boudleaux Bryant wrote the hits and the other part of the team is fading into history.

Any one have access to information? Billyshiverstick (talk) 19:11, 5 August 2012 (UTC)
