"Let It Be Me"

OK, a little more romance: This '55 Becaud/Delanoe composition was 1st recorded by Gilbert Becaud as "Je T'Appartiens". With English lyrics by Mann Curtis, it was a minor hit in '57 for Jill Corey. The best-known version is by The Everly Brothers in '60 (#7); their 1st recording with strings and outside of Nashville (NYC). Highest-charting version was by Jerry Butler and Betty Everett - #5 in '64. A Top 40 hit for Glen Campbell and Bobbie Gentry in '69.
Yesterday's answer: "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes".
