MY TORMENTED HEART (Enrico Toselli (m) 1900) As sung by Sarah Vaughan July 28 1952 (mono) 'Complete Jazz Series' (album released June 2009) Also sung by: Beniamino Gigli 1926 Mario Lanza Fernando de Lucia Richard Tauber Rudolf Schlock José Carreras Alfredo Krauss Ernest Revell Ronald Naldi Frank Chacksfield Perry Como And many many others… My tormented heart Cries out I still love you Though I know you're gone Your love lives on to haunt my memory. My tormented heart Will never forget you Though you said goodbye My heart and I refused to let you free. At the close of every day All alone I kneel and pray That some day you will realize That we wrong to part. Then maybe you'll return And dry these tears that burn In my tormented heart. (bridge) At the close of every day All alone I kneel and pray That some day you will realize That we wrong to part. Then maybe you'll return And dry these tears that burn In my tormented heart. NOTES: Enrico Toselli (1883 -1926) was an Italian concert pianist and composer. By far, the most well known of his songs was popularly referred to as Toselli's Serenade. It's also known as 'Rimpianto' or Serenata 'Rimpianto' or more commonly the 'Regret' Serenade. He also wrote 2 operettas (1912 and 1913) as well as tone poems. There are several sets of lyrics that have been adapted to fit Toselli's very popular piece. The artists above may not have sung the exact same lyrics as Vaughan but the music is generally true to the original. A host of the world's most famous tenors recorded this piece of music over the years. Sarah Vaughn, an American jazz singer who performed professionally from 1945 to 1990, was nicknamed 'Sassy' because of her rather informal speech and manner.
