OK, back to the 50's: Julius Dix(s)on and Beverly Ross penned this '58 pop standard for Ronald and Ruby. Even though they took it to #20, they couldn't perform it in public or appear on TV with it as they were an interracial couple, fairly unusual at the time. The Chordettes' cover became an international hit, peaking at #2 on Billboard's Hot 100 and at #3 R&B.

Yesterday's answer: "Music Box Dancer" by Frank Mills. I'm sure Bill Murray's Nick The Lounge Singer would have been more than glad to add lyrics just like he did with the Star Wars Theme ("Star Wars/Nothing but Star Wars/Give me those Star Wars/Don't let them end!").
