This was Patty Duke's first hit in the music industry. Like many of her predecessors (such as Shelley Fabares) she tried a career as a singer to capitalize on the success of her television career (notably her sitcom The Patty Duke Show
, which ran from 1963 to 1966). Although she managed to score three smaller hits after the success of this song, she ended her music career a year later and continued acting. She stated in several interviews that she never considered herself as a singer. She was allegedly pressured by her managers and peers to try that particular field.
