|The Four Pennies singles chronology|
"Juliet" was released as a single in the UK in February 1964 on the Philips label. Written by band members Lionel Morton, Fritz Fryer and Mike Wilsh, and produced by Johnny Franz, the song was the Four Pennies' second hit single. The ballad was originally intended to be released as a B-side (b/w "Tell Me Girl"). It reached number one in the UK Singles Chart on 21 May 1964, stayed there for one week, but spent fifteen weeks in the chart.
The song "Juliet" proved to be the group's only Top 10 hit. The Four Pennies reached the Top 20 three more times after this, but never had another really successful single. The group folded in the autumn of 1966, after their last single release, written by the ex-Springfields member Tom Springfield — "No More Sad Songs for Me" — failed to chart.
