@Violetivy76 I just watched the movie 2 Days ago , and I heard the song the first time so I looked it up here
Wow! What a set of pipes!
no reason arrest . newsvine . com
This wonderful song also appeared in a film called Let Him Have it (1992- based on a true story & directed by Peter Medak/starring Christopher Eccleston & Paul Reynolds). As the film was set in 1951-3, the main character Derek Bentley (played by Christopher Eccleston) kept playing it. It was the first record he bought and he was entranced by her voice.
I first heard this song back in the 90′s & am very happy to have found it on YouTube. Wonderful, powerful voice & such a classy looking lady.
I love me some Kay Starr!
God in heaven, this song is so outstandingly fantastic. I absolutly love it & love
seeing her perform it. I was not born in this time, but I’m glad that I have been
blessed to be able to enjoy this very fine music & to be able to listen to a fine talented lady God bless you Kay thank you for sharing your beautiful gift. To so many generations of fans. May peace be yours & ours.

Used to listen to this in Neesoon Singapore in my National Service. 77 now. Great memories…..
I had the privilege meeting Miss Starr around 1992, and she was the kindest, most gracious host ever! We laughed and chatted about many things, and it was a dream come true! She can still belt out a song. Truly elegant, Miss Starr is truly a star! Thank you for this great post- I appreciate it.
I remember singing this song as a child of the 50′s on one of those penny arcade record making machines. WOW! What memories. Always a great song! Thanks.
Thank you so much for that information!
