Or completely forgotten in this example. Had this on CD single (from a bargain bin) for this band who were nearly almost remotely popular for one hot millisecond. But somehow popped into my head earlier...
Did an experiment. Went to the OCC website and clicked on the things to get to a random date in the 1960s. It landed on 7 April 1966 and I then went down the chart to see the first record I didn't recognize.
It was this one.
Two places lower was Val Doonican's version. Both Lind and Val would peak at 5, as Bob had in the States. They might have cost each other a no. 1. In Ireland, Bob's version missed the charts in toto, but Val got to 3. Bob Lind at least could claim all the songwriting royalties, given he wrote it. But it was his only top 40 on either side of the Atlantic.
