This song was often played [or performed] on UK radio when I was a lad, but I don't recall whose version it was.

My current CD collection has a nice version by Connie Francis, besides Elvis.

There's also a version by Fats Domino (Imperial, 1957, originally released on an EP), but it's nothing to shout about.

How odd that I should write the above on 24th April !

I've just read that there's a 'duets' CD that's coming out & there is one of those 'fake' ones of the My Happiness song, with the voices of Connie Francis & Elvis !

What were the chances of that, eh ?
