"Glendora" is a popular song written by Ray Stanley and published in 1956. It was recorded on May 8, 1956 by Perry Como. It was released by RCA Victor in the United States (catalog number 20-6554 on 78rpm, 47-6554 on 45rpm) and by RCA in France (catalog number 45-326); it was released in the United Kingdom by HMV (catalog number POP-240).
The song deals with a man's unusual attraction to a department store mannequin, and his disillusionment when, at the end of the song, he happens to see it disassembled during the store's renovation.
"Glendora" was re-released by RCA Victor as a single in the "Gold Standard" series (catalog numbers 420-0817 and 447-0817), backed with "More." It has been included on albums Como-Tion (an extended play album released in 1960) and Love Makes the World Go 'Round (an LP released in 1964).
