Did you ever think you'd hear Andy Williams on The World? The song "Where Do I Begin" made it into the top 10 in the US and many parts of the globe when it came out in 1970. The tune originally appeared as the theme in the film "Love Story.” Frenchman Francis Lai composed the song. He died on Wednesday at the age of 86. Lai's theme to "Love Story" was catnip for crooners and instrumentalists the world over.
