Lead singer on "I Wonder What She's Doing Tonight," the only hit by New York-based the Tamerlanes in 1963, Barry de Vorzon has continued to make his presence felt as a producer and composer. His scores have been heard in such films as Xanadu, Rolling Thunder, Bless the Beasts and Children, Private Benjamin, and The Ninth Configuration. One tune, "Cotton's Theme," originally heard in Bless the Beasts and Children, was renamed "Nadia's Theme" and scored by Perry Botkin Jr. as the theme song of popular television daytime serial The Young and the Restless. Folk-pop singer Melanie covered his songs "Stop! I Don't Want to Hear It Anymore" and "We Don't Know Where We're Going" on her 1971 album Garden in the City. De Vorzon's tune "It's Christmas Time in San Francisco" has become a yuletide classic.
As an A&R man for the Valiant record label, de Vorzon made his greatest move when he signed the Association to the label and produced their debut single, a pop version of Bob Dylan's "One Too Many Mornings." De Vorzon was a recipient of the Doris Day Music Award from Ark Trust, Inc.. ~ Craig Harris~ Rovi
