"Cara Mia" by Jay and The Americans.

OK, back to the 60's: Englishman David Whitfield first recorded this Mantovani/Lewis composition in '54. He became the first British male singer to earn a gold Disc in the U.S. When Jay Traynor left his original group he was replaced by The Empires' lead singer and Thom McAn shoe salesman David Blatt. They took the song, which translates to "My Beloved", to #4 in '65. Song? Blatt's stage name? Yesterday's answer: ‎"A Thousand Stars" by Kathy Young and the Innocents. Ol' Wink's been around for a LONG time!
