*In the pre-rock era, if a song became a hit, it spawned "me-too" versions aiming to capitalize on the original's success -- and this song is one of the best examples you can imagine. Mitchell's version out-scored renditions by Dinah Shore (#3), Vic Damone (#4), Jimmy Wakely (12), Bill Farrell (#18), Al Morgan (#24), Evelyn Knight & Red Foley (#28), and Victor Young (#29) -- all within six months of each other. But this one wasn't through yet. Ray Charles re-discovered it in 1964 (#38) and Connie Francis covered it yet again three years later (#118).
