Born Howard Andrew Williams in Wall Lake, Iowa- Andy Williams was one of the most popular easy listening singers/ entertainers of that era. While Andy Williams version of the Elvis classic didn’t do all that well in the US- it went all the way to #3 on the UK Singles Chart. He had 45 Hot 100 singles in his career with 28 making the Top 40 from 1956-76. His only #1 was “Butterfly” 1957. His signature song “Moon River” was oddly never a hit. At this point- 1970- he only had one more Top 40 hit left- “Love Story” #9 in 1971. Williams died in 2012 at the age of 84 from cancer.

  1. I remember his heyday. He and his wife, Claudine, had a Christmas special for some years. Back in the day of only 3 channels (if you don’t count PBS.) Elvis owns this song. Andy’s seems too fast.
