It's Really Love and Toot Sweet became Johnny's Theme

It's Really Love and Toot Sweet are Johnny's Theme

Annette Funicello passed away yesterday.  Disney had the young actress signed to a record contract when she recorded "It's Really Love".

"It's Really Love" was simply a reworking of a Paul Anka song called "Toot Sweet".

Paul Anka reworked the song a third time and came up with "Johnny's Theme", a song you've likely heard hundreds of times.

Paul Anka and Annette Funicello actually dated for a while in the late 50s. Now you know... the rest of the story.
