I didn't know that Wally was a C&W yodeling cowboy singer!  I had seen that RCA record hundreds of times back in the 1950s, but never had the guts to listen to it, and I never heard it played on the pop stations, back in Winnipeg.  Once we got to Chicago, I never heard it, even though it might have been played, sporadically, as an "Oldie", on the Pop stations, - or, more likely, on the Hillbilly C&W stations.  But. I didn't have any Hillbilly friends.

I never heard it until a few minutes before I posted it- it's different ! 

Somehow, Wally managed to make Billboard's "Winners Destined For Headlines in 1954" list! This probably had more to do with "Mr. Peepers" than his 45 -

Not a bad prediction though.

Frank Sinatra, Liberace, Harry Belefonte, Jackie Gleason, Eddie Fisher, Eartha Kitt, Victor Borge, all became stars. Even Champion (presumably "The Wonder Horse") is in there.

If you had heard it Rob you wouldn't have bought it

Billboard is referring to Marge and Gower Champion the dance duo who were in quite a few 50's Hollywood musicals. There's some videos on you tube where you can see them in action

This version is better 

 

I dislike this much more than Cox's version.   The guitar is nice (but only sporadic, a few notes at a time.  The singing is abysmal.  It's "corny", the kind of country farmers' music that drove me to "Race Music", back in the early '50s.  Thank goodness we made annual visits to Chicago, back then, so I could get records.

Actor, game show host, comedian, and anything but an accomplished singer, Robert Q. Lewis was another of  "Winners Destined For Headlines in 1954".  This "gem" was one of his hits:

What surprises me is that this terrible song was written by such excellent Brill Building songwriters, Hal David and Leon Carr.

We don't seem to have a video insert tool anymore.  How can I upload a YouTube video into a post anymore?  Other posts above still have them.  😟

Just copy (You Tube) and paste the web link (in to the thread) of the you tube video Rob (I was joking as well by the way all versions are yuk IMO)
