Or rather, Alfie Boe’s Guide to Romance envisaged by thoughtsofjustafan! Seriously though, as Alfie’s new album, Serenata, is marketed as his “most romantic album yet”, this is the perfect opportunity to check out Alfie Boe’s most romantic songs to date.
When polled, most fans were happy to go with My Heart is Yours as the most romantic song Alfie has yet recorded but what about before Serenata? A good proportion of Alfie’s songs can be categorised as romantic and the songs nominated included:
- I can’t help falling in love
- Dimming of the Day
- If I go away
- First time ever I saw your face
- When I fall in love
- You are my heart’s delight
Now, in the name of extensive research, I listened to all of these (it’s a hard job but someone’s gotta do it) and I do have my favourite. That favourite is I Can’t Help Falling in Love, just to die for. However, if I had to choose a whole album being the most romantic, I would choose Love Was A Dream. Not only does it ooze romance but the sound of Alfie’s soaring vocals, recorded right in the middle of the orchestra, has rarely been bettered.
The song chosen by you the fans as being Alfie’s most romantic is When I Fall in Love, from the Alfie album. This is not a song we have heard Alfie sing often but he did perform this in Seoul earlier this year:
In his autobiography, Alfie mentions that just before he recorded this, he found out he was to be a Dad again so a perfect choice for his most romantic song.

I am very surprised that this was a popular choice. It’s a nice song but has been covered by a lot of people and the definitive version is Nat King Cole’s which Alfie doesn’t actually improve on. I like your choices better.
