Gaetano Alberto "Guy" Lombardo (June 19, 1902 November 5, 1977) was a Canadian-American bandleader and violinist of Italian descent.

He formed the Royal Canadians in 1924 with his brothers Carmen, Lebert, and Victor, and other musicians from his hometown. They billed themselves as creating "the sweetest music this side of Heaven". The Lombardos are believed to have sold between 100 and 300 million records during their lifetimes, many featuring the band's lead singer, Kenny Gardner.

"Seems Like Old Times" is a popular song, with music and lyrics by Carmen Lombardo and John Jacob Loeb.

It was originally recorded by Guy Lombardo's orchestra on November 15, 1945 and released by Decca Records as catalog number 18737.

The recording by Joe Loss and His Orchestra with vocal by Sam Brown was made in London on April 17, 1946. It was released by EMI on the HMV Records label as catalog number BD 5931.

Vaughn Monroe recorded a hit version of the song, released in 1946 by RCA Victor Records. It is featured in Rockstar Games L.A. Noire video game.

Ella Fitzgerald recorded it on her 1968 Columbia album 30 by Ella.

It was the theme song of Arthur Godfrey on his radio programs and also played a central role in Woody Allen's 1977 film Annie Hall, where it is sung by Diane Keaton as the title character.
