Notes: ~ introduced by Wilber Evans in the 1944 Stage musical "Mexican Hayride." This was still early in the
Como career but he had reasonable success with this recording, reaching #12 on the charts, but Bing Crosby's
recording on Decca would hold the #1 spot for five weeks. Other popular versions were recorded by
Enric Madriguera and his Orchestra on the Hit label and Jo Stafford for Capitol.
