Three Coins In The Fountain

Music by Jule Styne and Sammy Cahn

Originally Performed by The Four Aces

Three Coins in the Fountain" is a popular song which received the Academy Award for Best Original Song in 1955. The melody was written by Jule Styne, the lyrics by Sammy Cahn. It was written for the romance film, Three Coins in the Fountain and refers to the act of throwing a coin into the Trevi Fountain in Rome while making a wish. Each of the film's three stars performs this act.

Cahn and Jule Styne were asked to write the song to fit the movie, but were unable to either see the film or read the script. They completed the song in an hour and had produced a demonstration record with Frank Sinatra by the following day. The song was subsequently used in the film soundtrack, but in the rush 20th Century Fox neglected to sign a contract with the composers, allowing them to claim complete rights over the royalties.[2] The song was subsequently recorded by The Four Aces, backed by the Jack Pleis Orchestra, in 1954. The Sinatra recording topped the UK Singles Chart for three weeks in September and October that year.[
