The biggest hit version (#5 on the pop charts) was by The Chordettes in 1956. In 1968, Sonny James recorded a version of the song which reached number one on the country charts. In 1973, Dave Edmunds had a UK Top 5 hit with the song, using his then popular "wall of sound" technique, borrowed from Phil Spector. Steel-string acoustic guitarist Leo Kottke included his rendition of the song on his 1974 album, Ice Water. It would be the title track for an album released by Dion DiMucci in 1975. Country singer Sandy Posey released the song in 1978 and it went to #21 on the country charts. Anne Murray recorded a cover of the song for her album Croonin' (1993).
