On an icy January afternoon in 1957, Perry Como recorded one of his hottest hits. For perhaps an hour, Perry and the musicians experimented with the background sound, then settled on drummer Terry Snyder's wire brushes on his drum case. 'We all thought it would be a hot one,' Perry said later of Round and Round. But if we handed it to an arranger, what could he arrange? There was really nothing there. I said why don't we do a row-row-row-your boat-thing. I started the beat on the piano, and that's what we came up with.' And that's how some million-sellers are born!
