Lady and the Tramp “Bella Notte” (1955)

Apart from “The Siamese Cat Song,” I think one of the most memorable scenes from Lady and the Tramp is “Bella Notte” when Lady and Tramp have a romantic spaghetti dinner while the chefs serenade them. Unbelievably, the iconic “spaghetti kiss” almost didn’t happen because Walt Disney was inclined to cut the moment out. Thankfully for us, he changed his mind.

This is the night
It’s a beautiful night
And we call it bella notte

Look at the skies
They have stars in their eyes
On this lovely bella notte

Funnily enough, even though Lady and Tramp are dogs, for years this scene was my idea of the perfect date (up to and including having my own version of a “spaghetti kiss.”) It’s simple, it’s romantic, and who wouldn’t like being serenaded under the stars?

So take the love of your loved one
You’ll need it about this time
To keep from falling like a star
When you make that dizzy climb

For this is the night
And the heavens are right
On this lovely bella notte
On this lovely bella notte

After all the bad things that happened to Lady with Aunt Sarah and her devilish cats (who are never seen again as far as I know), this scene provides a nice breather for our canine heroine (which is good because things are about to get bad again in a little bit).
