"Hi Lili, Hi Lo" from "Lili".

OK, back to the 50's: This classic pop tune was written in '52 (GREAT YEAR!) by Bronislau Kaper and Helen Deutsch. First recorded in '52 by Dinah Shore. Featured in a '53 Leslie Caron film and recorded by her and Mel Ferrer that same year (#30 U.S.). Covered by Richard Chamberlain (yes, as in Dr. Kildare!) in '63 (B-side "All I Have To Do Is Dream"), peaking at #64 US and #20 UK. Song? Film?

Yesterday's answer: Hank Cochran. Amazing catalog! His list of interpreters reads like a who's-who in Country Music. He'll be missed.
