Thread Name: Origins: Over the Waves / Sobre las Olas
Subject: RE: Info request -
G'day Les,

This may not help much with the ultimate origins, but the waltz is just as popular here in Australia and often known by the less accurate name coming from the words (...When you are in love, it's ..."The Loveliest Night of the Year").

In fact, it took me many years to realise that "Over the Waves" was the same tune.

Regards,

Bob Bolton
