Ferrante & Teicher: You Light up My LifeA piano duo, Arthur Ferrante and Louis Teicher met while both were studying at Juilliard in the late '40s. After years of being guests in front of large orchestras and cutting several cleverly arranged duo albums, they hit their stride in the early '60s with a string of lush orchestrated hit singles and albums based around their interlocking piano style.
The duo covered "Theme from the Last Waltz", the 3/4 time waltz instrumental from the Band's triple album The Last Waltz, on their 1978 LP You Light Up My Life. According to information posted in the guestbook at The Band web site, neither Ferrante nor Teicher had any interest personally in recording this selection. It was "forced" upon them by their record label, United Artists Records, and also released as a promotional single for the movie.
