English-born Australian singer Frank Ifield recorded ‘I Remember You’ in a yodelling country music style in 1962. The song soon went to number one on the UK Singles Chart, where it stayed for seven weeks; it also reached number five on the US Billboard Hot 100.

The song was originally composed by Victor Schertzinger, with lyrics by Johnny Mercer, in 1941 and first recorded by Dorothy Lamour for the film, The Fleet’s In (1942).

Ifield’s success with this song was quickly followed by further number one singles ‘Lovesick Blues’ (1962) and ‘Wayward Wind’ (1963). After the release of the latter single, Ifield gave a break to a support act starting out in Liverpool – The Beatles.
