Lynn's version was used in the final scenes of the 1964 film "Dr. Strangelove Or: How I Learned To Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb" as multiple nuclear explosions oblitarate the civilized world. The year before Goodman's version, both Kay Kyser's and Guy Lombardo's orchestras had also recorded the tune; both peaked at number 24.
