"Come Prima" (English: As Before) is an italian popular song, with lyrics by Mario Panzeri and music by Vincenzo Di Paola and Sandro Taccani. The most popular version in Italy was by Tony Dallara (Antonio Lardera). A recording by the Marino Marini Quartet made the United Kingdom charts in 1958. The song was also recorded by Domenico Modugno. All these recordings were made in 1958.The melody was used for a French language song entitled "Tu me donnes," a hit for Dalida in 1959. It was also used for an English language song, "More Than Ever," (lyrics by Mary Bond) recorded in the United Kingdom by Malcolm Vaughan with the Michael Sammes Singers (14 weeks on the UK chart, peaking at #5[2]), Robert Earl (4 weeks on the UK chart, peaking at #26), Eve Boswell, and others. Another English language lyric by Buck Ram, under the title "For the First Time" (closer to the original Italian title), was recorded in the United States by Polly Bergen in 1958. This version was also performed by Mario Lanza in his last film, For the First Time (1959). Other performers were Dean Martin, the Platters, Tony Reno & the Sherwoods (the latter in 1965), and Golpes Bajos in 1985. Also it was recorded by Muslim Magomayev in 1961. The Lucky Duckies, Portuguese International band did it live since their first shows since 1987
