#60-Most Discussed(Today)-Music
The best-known recording of the song, released in October 1956 by Guy Mitchell, spent 9 weeks at #1 on the Billboard chart from December 8, 1956 - February 2, 1957, despite competition from rival versions by Tommy Steele and Marty Robbins. Tommy Steele's version also made no. 1 in the UK Singles Chart for one week on 11 January 1957.

The song became a UK Top 30 hit for Dave Edmunds in 1980. Other notable cover versions include a 1960 recording by Bill Haley & His Comets, a 1963 version by Dean Martin, and a 1971 version by Black Oak Arkansas. In the United Kingdom both the versions by Steele and Mitchell hit #1 in the same year. The song was a hit again in 1994 when covered by Daniel O'Donnell. It is not related to the song "Singin' the Blues," written by Sam Lewis, Joe Young, Con Conrad and J. Russel Robinson and recorded by Frank Trumbauer and Bix Beiderbecke in 1927. The tune was also sung by Vivian Vance and William Frawley (Ethel and Fred of I Love Lucy fame) for a Ford Motor Company television commercial promoting the Edsel.
