This song has been around for a long time, but I think the version that everybody relates to is the 1960's recording by Frank Ifield. We used to play this at parties and my old pal, Lary Diaz would sing it and have us all in a tizzy with his yodel. It was fun.

I would play this and try to sing it and I could never hit the high notes until I dropped the key - way down - and could finally get it - without the yodel part. We recorded it in E. Go ahead and try to sing down there it's a lonely place.

Harry Donahue played his rolling piano and Fred Sokolow did a great jazzy type guitar while Lee and Richard held it together on drums and bass. It worked and made it easy for me to sing.

I knew I was going to add Bill Champlin and Ginai so I was feeling comfortable with it. Just before they sang, Pierre Grill wanted to add his accordion (which had not occurred to me.) it really made the song special - as only an accordion, played by a Frenchman can do.

Bill and Ginai recorded about 10 tracks - including the high notes "you who whooooo" that everybody knows and it sounded wonderful. They then added an extra track on the last phrase and it gave it a 1950s choral sound. I loved it.

Every time I play this live - people start singing along and weaving back and forth (no, not from being drunk.) it just makes people feel good. I love the opening line "you're the one who made my dreams come true..a few kisses ago." WOW. Who writes stuff like that anymore ?
