Love this Song & any Starr son!
They used the original recording in the excellent film
“L.A. Confidential” – played the song all the way through!
The original recording of ”Wheel Of Fortune” by Kay Starr hit maintained the no. 1 position on the charts for nine consecutive weeks beginning the second week of March 1952.
I can’t place from where i (an 18 yr old) would reember this from – proabaly a film…
classy lady, period. one of my favorite songs.
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!
Memories! Kay Starr was one of those female vocalists I just loved as a teenager in high school and college, as well as my years in the military. Juke boxes in soda shoppes, the Student Union at the University of Maryland – Go Terps! and in the PX at Fort Jackson, SC during my first 4 or 5 months. She, Kitty Kallen, Georgia Gibbs, Jaye P Morgan, Teresa Brewer – I loved them all. Some of them have passed on, but some are still living and hopefully having fun, even if they’re not singing.
Wayne & Kay : 2 amazing Native American singers
One of the best ever! Brava!
Beautiful and petite, Kay was one giant ball of fire…amazing voice out of that diamond. Thank you beautiful lady for sharing your talent with the world.
