Italian Street Song
Since 1935, the song has been most closely associated with Jeanette MacDonald, who played the lead role of "Marietta" in the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer film version of the operetta that was released in that year. The song proved to be one of her most popular; she recorded it multiple times throughout her lifetime and she often performed it during concerts and radio appearances for the rest of her career. Her recording of the song was released as RCA Victor 78 RPM single #10-1134-A with Orchestra and Maximilian Pilzer, conducting.
It was performed on Sesame Street by Placido Flamingo, accompanied by an orchestra of animals making musical versions of their noises.
