Charted: 10 6

Songfacts®:

  • This is an adaptation of the French song "Connais-tu" written by Jean Renard and Pierre Havet. Carl Sigman penned the English version, which was originally recorded by Brenda Lee for her 1963 album Let Me Sing.
  • Artists that have covered the tune include Doris Day for her 1963 album, Love Him and Al Martino as part of a 1964 EP.
  • This was one of two Brenda Lee songs that Alison Krauss covered for her 2017 collection, Windy City - she also recorded "All Alone Am I."

    "I always think that people are attached to the music of their parents' youth," Krauss explained. "You see a lot of people who kinda go back to that period and they have a romance about it. There's just something past our own memory that makes us connect."
