"April Love" by Pat Boone.

OK, back to the 50's: This multi-talented artist co-starred with Shirley Jones in his 1st movie (1957). The theme song by the same title, which he also sang, was a Sammy Fein/Paul Francis Weber collaboration. It topped the charts in '57 and was Oscar-nominated for Best Original Song. A devout Christian, he refused to kiss Jones onscreen as she was married in real life. Second biggest-charting artist of the late 50's, 2nd only to Elvis. #9 on Billboard's Top 100 Top 40 Artists 1955-95. Artist? Song?

Yesterday's answer: "Love (Can Make You Happy)" by Mercy. Great memories from the most fun summer ever '69 - between Jr. and Sr. years in H.S.
