    Well in Europe this song has been used as a theme song on several radio stations. For me personally, it made me fall in love with the sound of a Baritone guitar.

    But what many people don't know is that Eddy's version is actually a purely instrumental rendition of a song with the same title but with lyrics, sung by James Darren.


    Let alone that these days, very few know that both songs are actually from the soundtrack of a movie.

    You would never mistake James Darren for Bobby Darin.

    I guess I'm one of the very few....I knew it was a movie soundtrack song....it was one of the first 45 rpm records I ever owned, given to me a loooooong time ago by my older sister who did not like instrumentals.
    And, I believe I still have that record stored away. It is a great tune and has great twang! Thanks for bringing a fond memory back to surface. :)
