"Fascination" is a popular waltz song with music (1904) by Fermo Dante Marchetti and lyrics (1905) by Maurice de Féraudy (English lyrics by Dick Manning). Published in 1932, it was featured in the 1933 film [House on 56th Street], starring Kay Francis, adapted for the soundtrack of the 1946 film, The Diary of a Chambermaid, starring Paulette Goddard, and popularized in the 1955 movie The Grand Maneuver by René Clair and in the 1957 movie Love in the Afternoon by Billy Wilder.
A recording by Jane Morgan was released by Kapp Records as catalog number 191, which proved to become her signature song. It first reached the Billboard magazine charts on September 9, 1957. On the Disk Jockey chart, it peaked at #7; on the Best Seller chart, at #12; on the composite chart of the top 100 songs, it reached #11.
It was also recorded by Dinah Shore, Dick Jacobs, Nat King Cole, Earl Grant and David Carroll, all of whose versions, except Grant, made the charts.
