The Perfect Proposal: with L-O-V-E

I came across this funny video clip with the title "The Perfect Proposal" where a marriage proposal doesn't exactly go according to the plan. The soundtrack to the video clip is the song L-O-V-E that was written by Milt Gabler and Bert Kaempfert for Nat King Cole.

I'm not sure if it's Nat King Cole who sings this version, it doesn't sound like him but I may be wrong. Do you know who sings this version?

I have mostly heard the version of L-O-V-E from Nat King Cole's daughter Natalie Cole's album Unforgetable.

On a side note: I'm putting together a cd with swing music that is going to be played in the band breaks at a friend's wedding next weekend. I would like to include some swing love songs. Do you have any suggestions?

If you're in a fluffy "Oh-sho-be-do-be-oo-oo" state of mind, check out a real "Perfect Proposal". So romantic, say after me: "Aaaww!" :-)

What do you think of the video clip? Got any suggestions for swinging love songs? Please comment.

Yes, that's Nat King Cole's singing L-O-V-E.
