    Noooooooooooooooooo......!!!!!!!! Seriously, I recall Shirley Jones singing it in "The Music Man" movie many years ago, but I'm not sure I could make a reasonable guess as to who authored it!

    Lovely version Brenda!

    I always think of Shirley Jones, who sang it in the 1962 movie The Music Man when I hear this song.
    Barbara Cook sang it in the 1957 stage play. It was a big hit for Anita Bryant in 1952 and was covered by the Beatles in 1963.

    Meredith Wilson wrote the song and the stage play.

    Added on June 8: I guess I'd only read the first page when I first made this post. I see now that Shirley Jones and Meredith Wilson and The Beatles were already mentioned.

    Only just got around to having a listen, & it was an absolute pleasure, you really are a good player, (wish that I could be that good).
    Trying to do justice to various musical instruments.
