1950s EASY-POP Songs and Singers...on the verge of Rock 'n Roll
Any Time recorded by Eddie Fisher introduced December 8, 1951
Written by Herbert ‘Happy’ Lawson
Orchestra conducted by Hugo Winterhalter
Young Eddie Fisher’s first million-selling hit Any Time was a 1921 vaudeville tune, successfully revived in 1948 by his RCA labelmate, country star Eddy Arnold. Eddie Fisher’s big voice version of Any Time was one of several songs recorded during his two-year tour of duty in the US Army Special Services. The song zoomed to #2 on the charts and it might have been even more successful if the flamboyant, bravura baritone had been able to promote it.
Quintessential Fifties lyric:
"Anytime you say you want me back again, that’s the time I’ll come back home to you"
