Notes: ~ Introduced by Ezio Pinza in the Stage Musical "South Pacific". Pinza's single, from the cast album, was a million-seller as was Perry's recording for RCA Victor. Other best-sellers were recorded by Jo Stafford for Capitol, Frank Sinatra for Columbia, and Bing Crosby for Decca.  In the 1958 Hollywood Musical it was sung by Giorgio Tozzi, dubbing for Rossano Brazzi and Mitzi Gaynor. There were later popular recordings by Jay and the Americans in 1965 for United Artists and Jane Olivor for Columbia in 1977.
