  • Carl from San FranciscoWikipedia also claims this is based on an Armenian melody.
    the least the people who assert this could do is let us know the title of that song.
  • M from CanadaBeing of Italian origin, I find the thick stereotypical accent in the song actually quite prejudicial. It is mocking how my parents sounded when they spoke English. She didn’t have this accent, she mimicked it for a laugh
  • Bob from ColoradoDoes anyone really believe this song has no intention of being an anthem for seduction? I don't want to diminish Rosemary Clooney's extraordinary talent, for which I have a great deal of respect. However, I submit that it would never have been such a huge hit unless people perceived a great deal of sexual innuendo lurking barely beneath the surface. Claims to the contrary ring very hollow with me, just like when the Beatles insisted that Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds had nothing to do with LSD. Any thoughts?
  • Kiril from MontrealDoes anyone know the name of the Armenian song on which the tune was based?
  • Edward from Henderson, NvUsed in 1997, at the beginning of "Intimate Relations."
  • John from Anaheim, CaJulie London covered this song a few years later in her trademark smoky style. It sounds quite different from the Clooney version - and both sound great!
