Name That Tune

How many songs do you “know”, but “don’t know”? This tune suddenly appeared during my harmonica practice. I knew the melody. I knew that it was a love song from a show or movie, but I didn’t know the title or most of the lyrics or who sung it. Can you place it? Here’s a big hint.


First person to peg it in the comments gets 10 points. And you know what points mean!

    Very good Lucy and Gary. You both get half points. It is "Secret Love" sung by Doris Day in the 1953 movie "Calamity Jane".I could not think of the title. I thought it might be "Perfect Love", but that wasn’t it. I had to Google some of the lyrics to get it. The lyric I could remember was "Now I shout it from the highest hill". That led me to a YouTube video of Doris singing the song.
