The Tuesday Song of the Week

The great heldentenor Lauritz Melchior appeared in a bunch of MGM musicals back in the day playing a big cuddly opera singer.

Some time in the 1950s an album was put out with the songs he'd sung in these movies.  I found the album either at an auction or a thrift store.  

This is my fave from the record, a song from a Victor Herbert operetta rendered in a heavy Danish accent:

'I Want What I Want When I Want It' - Lauritz Melchior
