This top-five hit began a great year for Joni James. Her nine hits on the the charts in 1953 included Your Cheatin' Heart, Almost Always, and My Love, My Love. Winsome female singers like Joni James, Connie Francis, Cathy Carr, Debbie Reynolds, and Karen Chandler reflected the feelings of fifties teenage girls.
Quintessential Fifties lyric:
"Have you heard of their wedding day Rumors come and go Still I'd like to know If it's true won't you tell me"
