While this upbeat, spirited, fast-paced, recording with offbeat you-began-to-ricochet-like-a-rifle-bullet lyric was not her favorite, producer Bob Thiele felt it would be a big hit and suit her unique talent.

Arrangements in the fifties were often tailored for the unusual vocal-styles of unique talents like Teresa Brewer, Jaye P. Morgan, Pearl Bailey, Gale Storm, Della Reese, Julie London, and Eartha Kitt.
