“Begin The Beguine” by Johnny Mathis – Disco Video Mix by Glenn Rivera
Johnny Mathis is a voice recognizable in 50s and 60s love songs. One of the male vocalists with a sound that brings many emotions to the heart and soul. Johnny’s 1979 album “The Best Days of My Life” follow the trend for many artists of the time by entering the disco arena bringing his talent using his style. The project was produced by Jack Gold and featured a cover of Cole Porter’s classic piece “Begin The Beguine”. A 12” single did very well with clubs featuring the glorious disco arrangement in a tradition that brings the feel of energy and the fantasy of the disco era.
I have taken the album version of “Begin The Beguine” and created a Disco Video Mix with scenes from the 2004 musical portrait of songwriter Cole Porter – “De-Lovely”. The wonderful biopic plays out with the hypnotic feel of the classic song. The film stars Kevin Kline and Ashley Judd and much of the start and closing of the romance and life of the unique relationship are the focus.
The film was directed by Irwin Winkler
