When You Come to the End of the Day
Featuring a most appealing melody and a very sentimental set of lyrics, "Scarlet Ribbons"
came into the world in 1949 with a recording by Juanita Hall ( who played Bloody Mary in
"South Pacific" ). Harry Belafonte had a big-selling recording of it in 1956. It was much beloved
by cafe performers and folk singers, because the story of the scarlet ribbons that appeared on the
little girl's bed in answer to her prayers never failed to move audiences. And when the singer is
Perry Como, the song becomes an extra treat , because Perry sings it slowly and sweetly, and
holds those whole notes beautifully , as only he can.
( notes from "The Incomparable Como" Readers Digest UK compilation 1975 )
