This Is Perry Como Volume 1
 
A reflection of the instability of the late 1940s was this moody torch song, which told of the instability
of a big romance. Gordon and The Starlighters had a hit with it in 1949, the last year of shaky peace
etween the end of World War II and the start of the Korean conflict. The sad, pensive tune was written
by Bennie Benjamin and George David Weiss. It contrasts sharply with the jauntiness of some of their
other hits, such as Wheel of Fortune, Cross Over the Bridge and Surrender.
( notes from "The Incomparable Como" Readers Digest UK compilation 1975 )
