No idea what you'd define as a "pop hit", but the first operatic type song I thought of that was a big hit is "Once Upon a Dream" from SLEEPING BEAUTY

 

next

one of AFI's top 100 greatest movie songs (other than the obvious #1, "Over the Rainbow")

*(FYI--"Be My Love" song by Mario Lanza would be a semi- operatic pop hit.)

" Moon River " by Henry Mancini and Johnny Mercer

 How's about a little shout-out for the drummer in this number, the Great Gene Krupa?

This is a hard request but I do like Jimmy Cagney, so it'll be "The Kissing Rock" from "West Point Story".

Next: Another number featuring The Great Gene Krupa!
