"Morgen" is a popular German song (1959), originally performed (in German) by Ivo Robić and The Song-Masters. Written by Peter Moesser,[1] the song became a hit in Germany, and later on the US charts in 1959 where it peaked at #13.[2]

English versions, titled One More Sunrise (lyrics by Noel Sherman), were issued as singles by Leslie Uggams,[3] and Vera Lynn[4] and other performers of the era: the only artist to reach the UK Top 20 with his version of the song was Dickie Valentine who spent 7 weeks therein from October to December 1959, peaking at No 14.[5]

The Ventures recorded an instrumental version to open their first album in 1960, Walk, Don't Run, on Dolton BLP 2003 (monaural)/BST 8003 (stereo).[6][7]

Bing Crosby included the song in his 1961 album Holiday in Europe and Petula Clark sang the song on her 1965 album The World's Greatest International Hits.[8]
