Charted at #64 on Billboard Hot 100 in December 1959. One of the best singles of 1959, with lush orchestration and a perfect song for Ray. "Goodnight My Love" had been a #7 Billboard R&B hit for Jesse Belvin, and #32 Pop for the McGuire Sisters in 1956/1957. The Fleetwoods revived it in 1964 managing to chart again at #32 on the Hot 100 and #12 Adult Contemporary, while Ben E. King edged slightly into the Hot 100 at #91 with another remake in 1966. The Happenings had mid-chart success (at #51 Hot 100) later in 1966/1967, while Paul Anka had a comeback hit with his version in 1969 (charting at #27 Hot 100 and #2 Adult Contemporary). Finally, the Tavares charted at #14 R&B with yet another remake in 1977.

B-side is "Till Then" which I've also posted, and which is also excellent.
