The Song from Moulin Rouge (also known as Where Is Your Heart) is a popular song that first appeared in the 1952 film, Moulin Rouge.
The music was written by Georges Auric. The original French lyrics were by Jacques Larue, the English words by William Engvick. However, in the film the song is called Its April Again, and there is no mention of the phrase Where Is Your Heart.
In Moulin Rouge, the theme song was sung by Muriel Smith, dubbing for Zsa Zsa Gabor who lip-synched to Smiths singing.
The most popular version of the song was made by Percy Faiths Orchestra, with a vocal by Felicia Sanders. The recording by Faith and Sanders was made on January 22, 1953 and released by Columbia Records as catalog number 39944. It first reached the Billboard chart on March 28, 1953 and lasted 24 weeks on the chart, peaking at No. 1.
In the United Kingdom, the version by Mantovani was the biggest hit, on which recording the plaintive accordion theme was played by Henry Krein. This version also charted in the U.S. The recording by Mantovani was released in the U.S. by London Records as catalog number 1328. It first reached the Billboard chart on May 16, 1953 and lasted five weeks on the chart, peaking at No. 13. However, in the UK, Mantovanis version of the track reached No. 1 in the UK Singles Chart.
The song also reached number one on the Cash Box chart, which combined all versions, in 1953. Both Faiths and Mantovanis versions sold over a million copies.
