About the Song
More was originally composed as an instrumental piece for the soundtrack of the 1962 documentary film Mondo Cane. The film, which means "A Dog's World" in English, was a collection of shocking and unusual vignettes from around the world.
The instrumental version of the song served as the film's theme and played during various scenes.
The English lyrics for the song were later added by lyricist Norman Newell, and the song gained widespread recognition and popularity when American singer Andy Williams recorded it with vocals in 1963. Andy Williams' version became a hit, reaching a broad audience and becoming one of his signature songs.
The song has been covered by numerous artists over the years and remains a popular standard in the world of romantic music.Songs by Andy Williams on this site:
