Description

The Shadow of Paris, also referred to as "The Shadows Of Paris", is one of the great songs with little or no information. The Ultimate Pink Panther gathers the themes and other pieces of Henry Mancini's scores from the six Pink Panther movies. Beginning with the instantly recognizable "The Pink Panther Theme" and verging from almost unbearable romantic ("Royal Blue") and lusciously smooth ("Champagne and Quail") to silly ("It Had Better Be Tonight," "Shades of Sennett"), the tracks from 1964's film The Pink Panther are the most enjoyable. Partial Review by The song, sung by the chorus, is found on The Ultimate Pink Panther, (2004) and is from the film, "A Shot In The Dark".

Why must we meet In the shadows of Paris Where hardly a star Seems to shine Why can't we meet In the sunlight of Paris Where Paris can see You are mine Have you come to me from another Whose lips you have tried Do you still belong to another Is that why we hide Why am I cold In the sunlight of Paris When laughter and song Fill the sky Why am I warm In the shadows of Paris When I know that dawn Means goodbye Have you come to me from another Whose lips you have tried Do you still belong to another Is that why we hide Why am I cold In the sunlight of Paris When laughter and song Fill the sky Why am I warm In the shadows of Paris When I know that dawn Means goodbye "The AUDIO content does not belong to me.
