Recording information by FirenzerayGOLD

I have always loved this song and knew it as It's Impossible .It was actually written in Spanish by Armando Manzanero and called Somos Novios. In 1970, his song Somos Novios was translated into English by Sid Wayne, composer for Elvis Presley. The English version, "It's Impossible", was performed by Perry Como and was nominated for a Grammy. This success was marred by the verdict of an American court, which ruled against Manzanero, who was accused of plagiarism and forced to return all the royalties he gained from "It's Impossible". This was a great blow for Manzanero, who had composed the song "Somos Novios" twenty years before and who was himself the victim of plagiarism by a composer (not Sid Wayne). Today, it's acknowledged that Manzanero was indeed the composer of this song and that he was wrongfully accused. It has been sung as a duet bu Andrea Bocelli and Cristina Aguilera and it is simply beautiful. Catch it on youtube, you won't be disappointed.
