Whether heís flying over the ocean in a silver plane or seeing the pyramids along the Nile, Jo Stafford let him know You Belong To Me. Patti Page and Dean Martin also recorded You Belong To Me but it was Jo Stafford who sold two million copies of her all-time biggest recording in the fall of 1952 and followed it with another hit Jambalaya in the same year.
Quintessential Fifties lyric:
"Fly the ocean in a silver plane, see the forest when itís wet with rain"
