A Chronology of Mario's Music

The dates that are listed for the Coca~Cola shows are the show dates and not the actual recorded dates. Mario pre-recorded the songs for these shows. For instance, the very fist Coca~Cola song that Mario sang - Granada - was pre-recorded on June-8, 1951, and aired two days later.

There is some dispute concerning a few of these Coke shows as to who the conductor was. Sinatra was supposedly Mario's only conductor for the non-arias while Costa conducted all the arias. We have since learned that this is not the case.

- Bob Dolfi

In May 2003 we decided to link the words to the songs listed on Mario's Discography page. The creation of these song pages is a work in progress and will take some time to complete given the many songs Mario sang. Now for the first time you will be able to read the words to all his songs and sing along with Mario! Our regular 'Lanzalegend Message Forum' posters supported our efforts by providing the words to some of these songs, while remaining words came from our team and Mario's personal archives. A special "Thank You" to all who contributed.

Now <click> on the highlighted song titles and enjoy the words!

- Marlene D'Attanasio
