Still Enjoyable at 60 - "Enjoy Yourself" - The most popular version of the song, recorded by Guy Lombardo and His Royal Canadians, was made on November 27 (some sources give November 28), 1949. Vocals by Kenny Gardner & The Lombardo Trio vocals The recording was released by Decca Records as catalog number 24825.
The record first reached the Billboard charts on January 13, 1950 and lasted 19 weeks on the chart, peaking at #10.
Contemporary versions have been recorded by Amber, The Specials, The English Beat, The Busters, Todd Snider, and Jodie Holland. However, Guy Lombardo's version is as young and fun as it can be, mostly because of the lyrics.
I remember as a young boy seeing Guy Lombardo on TV at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York City for New Year's Eve. They would always play this song and it was really appropriate for the festivity. Great dance number too.
