Notes: ~ Also known as "Ac-Cent-Tchu-Ate the Positive," this song was introduced by Bing Crosby
and Sunny Tufts in the 1944 Hollywood musical "Here Come the Waves." It was nominated for an
Academy Award. Best-selling records by Bing Crosby and the Andrews Sisters (Decca), and
Johnny Mercer (Capitol). Artie Shaw, vocal by Imogene Lynn (Victor), and Kay Kyser, vocal by
Dorothy Mitchell (Columbia), also had popular recordings. The song was on "Your Hit Parade"
for thirteen weeks, four times as #1. Perry recorded this song in early 1958 for one of his very
first full stereophonic albums as noted above.
