While it was the only hit for The Shepherd Sisters (as The Sheps) in the United States (reaching #18 on the Billboard charts on November 11, 1957), in the United Kingdom it was one of a number of hits for Petula Clark (reaching #8 on the UK charts) before she became famous internationally. The Shepherd Sisters' version also charted in the UK, reaching #14, and another version, by The Southlanders, reached #17 on the UK chart.

A remake of the song by The Four Seasons charted in 1964, reaching its peak position, #28, on July 18. It was the act's last hit single on Vee Jay Records, as The Four Seasons left the label at the end on 1963 in a royalty dispute.

The song was also subsequently recorded by Tracey Ullman.
