Album: There! I've Said It AgainReleased: 1963Charted:
This is one of two US #1 hits whose lyrics begin with the words "I Love You." The other: "Please Don't Go
" by KC & The Sunshine Band.
This was the last US #1 hit before the Beatles took over the charts. When this dropped off, The Beatles came on for 14 weeks, with "I Want To Hold Your Hand
" (7 weeks), "She Loves You
" (2 weeks), and "Can't Buy Me Love" (5 weeks).
A #1 hit for Vaughn Monroe in 1945, but the first time it was recorded and released was in 1941 by the Benny Carter Orchestra.
Vinton was appearing in a concert when a "long-haired, bearded DJ" shouted to him as Vinton was walking to the stage, "Come here!" Vinton obliged, and the DJ told him that if he would record "There! I Said It Again," he would have his third #1 hit. The advice stunned Vinton as he took the stage.
Vinton did this in one take. He dismissed everybody from the studio, saying, "That's it. I could sing this all night, but it's not going to get any better. It's a hit just the way it is. Goodnight, everybody!"
