I didn’t realize that this was such a big world wide hit until researching it. This was Billy Swan’s only Top 40 hit- he had a couple other that made the Hot 100- but he was kind of like the journeyman ballplayer who has his one big moment in the sun. I always think of Ringo Starr when I hear this- Ringo should cover it- it has Ringo written all over it. Elvis did record “I Can Help” late in his life.
