I first heard this beautiful song by Brain Hyland in 1960 playing over my Rediffusion set. I was in secondary 1 back then. We did not have television nor radio. The Rediffusion set was rented by my aunt for a few dollars a month.
Hyland's version hit #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 on August 8, 1960 and also made the top 10 in other countries, including #8 on the UK Singles Chart.
