We often mistake the song “A time for us” as “Romeo & Juliet”, but that’s not. “A time for us” is a song written specifically for the film “Romeo and Juliet”, based on the novel of the same name by the great writer Williams Shakespeare. The film was released in 1968 (directed by Franco Zeffirelli), starring Leonard Whiting and Olivia Hussey.
The lyrics were composed by Larry Kusik and Eddie Snyder, while the music was assigned to the talented musician Nino Rota. Shortly after the movie came out, “A time for us” became very popular with young people.
When the artist Henry Mancini adapted it to an instrumental shortly afterward, “A time for us” became the No.1 song on the world’s music charts.
It can be said, in any form, lyrics or without lyrics, “A time for us” still won the hearts of fans. Each of us can find ourselves in this song, a time of passionate love, a time that we can “wipe out tears and get over challenges” to follow the call of love. What a beautiful and memorable time!
