Steve Lawrence took this to #1 in 1963- and Donny Osmond’s cover- returned it to the top spot 8 years later. Why? Wasn’t the first time bad enough? Listen at your own risk.

  1. My sister wants to mail in a grade from 1971.. .A+ but I’ll cancel her out with a 0 …I actually pushed the play button…I will regret that all day.

  2. Unquestionably one of the worst songs of the 1970s, or ever! I’m still in shock this spent three weeks at #1 in the same year as “Me and Bobby McGee”, “It’s Too Late” and “Maggie May” (which followed it). But in looking back at the songs that hit #1 in 1971, most were either fantastic or dreadful, with little in-between.

  3. It’s an ok song as far as The Osmond cult goes, but I never got over their pasty pablum attempts to compete with The Jackson 5. No contest! I love the comments that this song generated. Still laughing over your dream you were married to Marie Osmond lol
