Perry Como

One of the most popular vocalists between the end of World War II and the rise of rock & roll in the mid-'50s, Perry Como perfected the post-big-band approach to pop music by lending his own irresistible, laid-back singing -- influenced by Bing Crosby and Russ Columbo -- to the popular hits of the day on radio, TV, and LP. Both his early traditional crooning style plus his later relaxed manner and focus on novelty material were heavily indebted to Bing Crosby, though Como's appeal during the early '50s was virtually unrivaled. Born in 1912 in Canonsburg, PA, Como was working as a singing barber in his hometown when he began touring with local bandleader Freddie Carlone at the age of 21. By the mid-'30s, he got his big break with Ted Weems & His Orchestra, who headed a popular radio show named Beat the Band. After the orchestra broke up in 1942, Como hosted a regional CBS radio show later called Supper Club. The show's success gained him a contract with RCA Victor Records by 1943, and he also began working in Hollywood with Something for the Boys.

Perry Como's real big break came with the 1945 film A Song to Remember. His rendition of "Till the End of Time" spent ten weeks at the top of the charts and became the biggest hit of the year. Como's dreamy baritone worked especially well on ballads, such as the additional 1945-1947 number one hits "Prisoner of Love," "Surrender," and "Chi-Baba, Chi-Baba (My Bambino Go to Sleep)." Hired by NBC for another radio show in 1948, Como crossed over to the emerging medium of television that same year with the Chesterfield Supper Club. The show quickly took off, and eventually earned him four Emmy Awards. In the mid-'50s, Como began to indulge in light novelty fare, the titles often comprising nonsense words -- "Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Doo," "Hoop-Dee-Doo," "Pa-Paya Mama," and "Hot Diggity (Dog Ziggity Boom)." Though he often disliked the songs, they frequently became huge of the road pop.

Como's breezy songs had worked well at the beginning of the decade, but his appeal began to wane towards the end of the '50s, with the emergence of rock & roll and the wave of teen idols. His last number one hit, "Catch a Falling Star," came in 1958. Como was much less visible during the '60s, but returned in 1970 with his first live show in over two decades, and a world tour followed; a single ("It's Impossible") even made the Top Ten in late 1970. Como continued to record LPs and occasional television specials while making scattered appearances during the '70s and '80s. On May 12, 2001, Perry Como died in his sleep at his home in Florida. ~ John Bush

Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this you will be injured (you won't die) in two days. Now that you have started reading this don't stop. Post this on at least five other stations/son g s in the next 143 minutes. When you're done press f6 and your lovers name will appear on the screen in big letters this is so scary it actually works

I am 66 and remember watching him on TV as a child. Nice man with a great voice. I ran around with a ruff crowd and used to get teased for listening to Perry, Lawrence Welk, classical music. Their loss.

Perry is the pride of canonsburg, Pa. As a child I played on his parents front porch. His parents and my grand parents came over to America from Palena Italy. Good good people. Those were the days. Haha

I have been a fan of Perry Como since the 1940s One of his later recordings is my favorite. I have been trying to find a copy of his rendition of this song but have yet to locate one The song is one of his on his album called PERRY. The song! Hands of Time or Brian's Song.

Having comments on the generation of singer who brought me such pleasure, I will say that Perry for me had a sad thoughtful state of mind that would touch something in my soul. Wanted Someone I Trusted epitomizes this sentiment. A balance of strength and damage. I will make it but it deeply hurts. He made a great contribution to the genre.

There were the good boys Perry, Andy Williams, Tony Bennett, Nat King Cole, Steve Lawrence, then there were the bad boys Frank, Dean, Sammy. Never could decide about Frankie Lane or Mel Torme. Eddie Fisher started out good but that hussy Liz stole him from Debbie. Bing Crosby fell into disrepute late in life. I loved and love the music growing up and to this day. Thank you Pandora for making it possible to rebuild a time that was but a moment and providing for a way for it to continue today.
